Mexico's Hernandez Lazo Family artisans hand-weave this beautiful, naturally dyed wool area rug. With a grey background, the pattern is in a Zapotec style with tan and orange crosses in the center with angular arrows in several shades of orange on each side. A solid rectangle of mahogany brown borders the entire rug, which is finished with fringe.
The fleece is colored with organic dyes derived from plants, nuts, bark and cochineal, so colors can vary and you may see faint shadows on the fringe. These are the natural results of the process and are evidence that you have a unique piece of handcrafted art.
