These rugs are handwoven using a 100% wool weft and a 100% cotton warp. The weft is everything you see and feel on the rug except the fringe. The warp is the skeleton of the rug. We use cotton on the warp to guard against possible moth damage. Many of our rugs are designed in our locations in New Mexico and Arizona, with the actual weaving being done in skilled adult weaver's homes in India. This design was a project done mostly by our associate in India, Amit. This beautiful rug has a very intricate design and is bold while still being somewhat subtle in colors. Our handwoven rugs are done in limited quantities and are not mass produced. Each rug is an individual work of art.
