ITEM#: 16843385

This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

Browns, greens, yellow and pale grey mingle with beige and navy blue in a hand-woven, virgin wool, Mexican area rug. Gregorio Ruiz Lopez works on the handloom to create the designs on this area rug which features a hem instead of a fringe.

Product Features:
  • Materials: 100-percent wool
  • Pile height: 0.2 inches high
  • Primary color: Blue, brown, beige
  • Secondary colors: Green, yellow, grey
  • Dimensions: 5 feet long x 2.4 feet wide

Story Behind the Art:
'My grandmother would take me to buy wool. She'd wash it, card it, spin it and dye the yarn. Women have always done this job. By the age of 12, I could reach the pedals of the handloom. Ever since, I've making rugs and now my sons have also learned our craft.'

What is Worldstock?

The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.


Tip: We recommend the use of a non-skid pad to keep the rug in place on smooth surfaces.

All rug sizes are approximate. Due to the difference of monitor colors, some rug colors may vary slightly. We try to represent all rug colors accurately. Please refer to the text above for a description of the colors shown in the photo.

Please allow 10 business days for the product to leave our warehouse and to receive tracking information. You should expect to receive this item within 15 business days.

Please keep in mind that new wool rugs may initially shed and have a natural capacity to shed for several months after purchase. This is normal due to the nature of construction of most wool rugs and not a defect. Click here to view our Wool Rug Care Guide.

    We really like this rug and are using it as a decorative piece draped over a pony wall. The good news it has gorgeous colors, the bad news is it was sent folded and we are still working to get out the creases. I think it will be fine eventually but was a bit disappointing to have to work so hard to get it to look right.
