Image of Cochineal

This rug was handwoven in Oaxaca, Mx, in the village of Teotitlan, by a family who has been weaving for generations.

The warp (of which all you can see is the fringe) is made of cotton, and the weft, (the whole design that you can see), is wool. All of the wool is either in its’ natural state, or dyed using materials from Mother Nature. These natural materials are collected in the land surrounding the weavers home. The preparation and dying of the yarn is extensive.

The creation of a rug is time consuming and labor intensive, and requires the skill of a seasoned weaver.

This beautiful red is derived from the cochineal insect found on the cactus plants that grow in Mexico. The accent colors are light and dark indigo, and pomegranate.

Dimensions: 68in x 24 1/2in

This will fit right over your yoga mat, and is reversible.
