Understanding the Craft Manufacturing Process

The People

This is Maria, a descendant of the original inhabitants of deep South America, respectful of ancestral wool yarn production traditions.

The artisan’s unique way of twisting the yarn by hand is crucial for the softness and resistance of the carpets/rugs.

This technique is even older than the use of the spinning wheel.

The wool

Wool is one of the most important things to consider when making the hundreds of yards of yarn needed for a rug.

We prefer pure Merino wool, considered the best of its kind, and it is the only type of wool used by our artisans.
It starts with the shearing of the Merino sheep flocks in Patagonia, Argentina.

After cleaning, artisans take the fleece and manually turn it into a delicate yarn for the looms.

As mentioned, every inch of yarn is hand-spun from the fleece and twisted manually.

Notice that a 7×6-foot rug has approximately 6,500 feet of hand-twisted yarn.

The dye

We get the colors by dying the wool manually.

We use pigments from nature.

We get the final colors in our rugs by using an ancient technique of extracting dyes from plants like Algarrobo, Beetroot, Jarilla, Chinchilla, Pata, Tusca, Beetroot, Carrot, etc.

All these plants grow wildly in natural forests and are free from chemical additives or treatment.

FAQs

Why buy our rugs?

With one of our outstanding rugs, you will dress your rooms and define your space with a unique piece of art, adding a touch of authentic and pleasant softness, warmth, and calm sensations.

Are these rugs traffic-resistant?

Absolutely! Woolen rugs have been with us since immemorial times. Due to the handcrafted torsion of the wool, there is no overstressing of the yarns, making them highly resistant to everyday use.

Can I customize my rugs?

Yes, you can. Personalized color and design orders must be made by contacting our customer service on the contact page. Consider that the process takes about 45 days and about six shipping days.

How do I take care of my rug?

The only maintenance needed is cleaning. This is a three-step process: first, vacuum its front, second, vacuum its backside; and finally, vacuum its front again. This process should be done gently and regularly with no brush to avoid peeling. In case of liquid stains, clean them with a mix of water, white vinegar, and neutral detergent. If deeper cleaning is needed, only dry cleaning guarantees results. Never hand-wash or use washing machines or dryers.

Do I have to use a rubber anti-slip mat?

An anti-slip rug pad is a must-do while placing the rugs on the floor to avoid accidents. Put the rug pad under the rugs and trim off protruding edges. If you put the rug over another carpet, no anti-slip pad is needed.

How do I take care of the colors?

Although the rugs’ strength and durability are not affected, we recommend no direct sunlight or intense light exposure to avoid the discoloration of their natural colors.

Final advice.

Please do not care about the creases when folding time; they will disappear after a while and after everyday use. Always use an anti-slip mat under the rug. These are handmade products so that you might expect wool strands and fluff. Remove them carefully with scissors or let them be: they will remind you of the artisanal product only a few people own. Never place the rugs on a wet floor. After years of use or depending on the area you place them (low or high traffic area), peeling may arise; shave the rugs carefully with a hair or beard trimmer.
