TEJIDO INDIO

The exquisite craftsmanship in these creations of the magical dry forest of northern Argentina is born from time-honored hand spinning and flat loom weaving techniques. The finest and purest sheep wool colored with vegetable dyes and lead-free mineral pigments is used to create these soft yet sturdy and durable pieces that will bring quality of life, serenity and harmony to your home.

Wool is an excellent acoustic and thermal insulator, and in addition to being a sustainable material that is very easy to clean and care for, it is also safe as in the unfortunate event of catching fire, it will not burst into flames and will only smolder. The pigments used include UV filters and wool density of these rugs is 0.850 kg of wool per sqm.

When you buy this rug you become a significant member of a project spanning more than 15 years and involving more than 140 weavers and artisans in the north of Argentina, always respecting the ancestral knowledge and wisdom of local communities and their traditions in a fair trade environment.
