Meet the Makers
This carpet was handwoven by Pedro C., a Zapotec rug weaver from Teotitlan de Valle in Oaxaca, an indigenous Mexican community.
Pedro lives in Teotitlan with his family and works at a local weaving workshop that produces rugs which are sold throughout the region including the capital, Oaxaca City. To provide for his family, he also produces his own rugs at home, when he is not at the workshop. While visiting Teotitlan, we met Pedro and it was great listening to him explaining all the different kind of techniques and colors that he uses in his designs.
Vacuum the rug regularly, but leave out the fringe to keep the tassels in shape. You can also take it outside, drape it over a clothesline or a porch railing and beat it well with a broom. Vacuum it after to remove left over dust.
In case the carpet gets wet unintentionally, blot the section dry with a towel. For stains also use a clean cloth to blot any excess liquid. If necessary, use only wool friendly & mild detergent and work from the corner to the center of the stain. Avoid rubbing as the stain might spread. Apply lukewarm water in the same manner to dissolve the detergent and blot dry.
Make sure to always dry the rug completely. This might take several hours.
