ARROW Wool Throw Rug
The Arrow Wool Throw Rug is 100% handmade on a waist loom. Its iconic geometric design works as an accent piece on any room setting, adding color and texture. This accent rug is from the Teotitlan Del Valle community of Oaxaca Mexico. The creation of a wool carpet like this is a slow process that can take up to 2 weeks to finish! The ancient patterns can be used in bohemian, southwestern, mid-century and modern settings. You can use it as a stand-alone piece beside your bed, nightstand or sofa; for your home or office foyer or entrance, or it can be used as a setting area for a small table or plant. The weave is very thick and durable, and made to last for years!
Measurements: 3 ft length x 2 ft width: Fabric is 100% heavy weight wool on top and raw linen on back.
The waist loom is a very old technique used by Mesoamerican cultures. At present, artisans continue to use this technique to make some of the pieces they use for their clothing as well as items and accessories for the home. This technique used in some communities of Oaxaca and Chiapas, consists of intertwining threads of any type of fiber in a wooden loom, tying them to a pole or tree on one side and to the waist of the craftsman on the other; and interconnecting perpendicularly other threads with chopsticks to give the finish to the weft of the fabric.
Unfortunately, these ancestral techniques have been replicated with machines, removing the human element in such a way that their production is greater in a shorter time. Naturally, this has repercussions for the original producers, creators of these crafts, because it is impossible to compete with the prices generated by cheap production. Thank you for supporting the artisans.
Most of our rugs are made from natural fibers. Upcycled rugs contain a blend of natural and synthetic fibers from recycled products. To ensure long-term use, please follow the care instructions provided.
Stains: Blot immediately to absorb any liquid. Vacuum to remove any loose, dry particles before cleaning. Clean with a mild, natural soap mixed with equal parts white vinegar and water. Professional cleaning may be best to eliminate persistent stains.
Regular Care: Vacuum without the rotating brushes to preserve the look of your rug. It is recommended to rotate your rugs regularly to avoid uneven fading or use. Professional cleaning recommended periodically.
