Pelu Aya Flor _ Natural Dye

600.00 (Out of stock - Coming soon)


Pelu Aya Flor is a naturally dyed, two-textured area rug woven by hand on a traditional foot loom from 100% hand-spun sheep’s wool. After washing, mordanting, and soaking the wool overnight, we extracted pigments from cochineal, berries, and onion and experimented with dye baths to create a variety of colors. Cochineal is an insect (native to Latin America) that has been used for centuries in indigenous communities as a dye for textiles.

All of our rugs are designed by Hanne de Wyngaert (Belgium) and then spun, dyed, and handwoven by Mayan weavers in Guatemala. We strive to provide economic opportunity and celebrate indigenous traditions to create beautiful and functional products.
