Wool rugs

Wool rugs

Our rugs are made by the Contreras family, in Teoltitlán del Valle, Oaxaca. They have a generations old tradition of making wool rugs. The whole family gets together and during a period of two weeks, they extract natural colors out of plants and insects, some of which they grow or breed themselves. Then they taint the wool in the different colors they need for their rugs. After this, they hand weave the rugs with traditional Zapotec designs.
Teoltilán del Valle is famous for it's rugs that have always been based on designs from the nearby ruins of Zapotec indians. We are very glad to bring this beautiful work here to Vienna.
