Details

White brings harmony between vivid red and cool blue in the vibrant design of this wool rug. Fermin Coguox weaves the rug on a traditional pedal loom and finishes it by hand, knotting the fringe. "This type of rug can take a considerable amount of time to finish," explains the Guatemalan weaver. "We then wash it with a black soap we prepare with ashes and lard to ensure the recently dyed wool doesn't lose its colors. We then stamp on it with our bare feet to ensure the weave is consistent and then we leave it hanging to dry."

1 Testimonial for Fermin Coguox

Michele

Thank you Firmin, the rug is beautiful, even more beautiful than on the picture. All those who see it admire it and ask me where I found it. The pattern is very stylish, and the warm colors cheer me up (currently, it's -15 C where I live, so a bit of warmth is very welcome) My best wishes to you and your family.
