Locally it is called Tapete. of Oaxaca, Mexico A naturally dyed wool rug woven by the Zapotec people of Teotitlán del Valle. We do not use chemicals for dyeing, and extract dyes from nature such as indigo for blue, rosemary for yellow, and cochineal insects collected from cacti for red, and dye the threads before weaving. It has a very natural color. It is also characterized by the unique color combinations of the local people.

This one is a little larger. I bought it because I was drawn to its mysterious color, which can't be called blue or purple. It looks like a single color, but if you look closely you will see that this color is created by combining yarns of multiple colors such as black, gray, and blue.

This one-of-a-kind wool rug is perfect for the upcoming season.

Size: 136×88cm (excluding fringe)

*Fragments of trees may be mixed in when dyeing the thread. The product is inspected at the time of purchase and in Japan, but if you notice it while using it, please gently remove it by picking it up with tweezers.
