These 100% natural wool rugs are artisanally crafted and dyed using natural plants and minerals. The wool comes from local family-farmed sheep, without the use of chemical pesticides. The white, gray, and black colors are the three natural sheep’s wool tones, while other accent colors are made from elderberry fruits, tree barks, plant leaves, cochineal insects, and indigo. The wool is sheared by hand, washed, hand-carded, hand-spun, and then boiled in open air vats with natural dyes and air-dried before being hand-woven on the artisanal foot-loom by a family workshop in Momostenango. All rugs are color-fast. Wash in cold water, air dry.
