The approach to our head rug weaver’s house is quite the trek up a very steep, winding road. The workshop is run by a young husband and wife with three generations of weaving knowledge. This partnership is our longest standing collaboration, and a special one at that!
All of the rugs here are made of 100% naturally dyed churro (a breed of sheep) wool. Dyes are made from vegetables, plants, and nuts creating a stunning color palette. All designs begin as a sketch or a swatch, and the process of translating them to the loom is organic and improvised.
