Wool area rug, 'Jasper Inspiration in Taupe' (4x6) (Guatemala)

Inspired by the colors of jasper, the Momosteco Weavers of Guatemala carefully hand-weave this area rug of wool to feature stripes of taupe, black and ash. Representing a local collective of artisans, the weavers use pedal looms inspired by colonial art forms to carefully craft the decorative rug, finished at each end with fringes.
