Vela - Oaxacan Textile
Originating from Teotitlán del Valle, Oaxaca, this one-of-a-kind textile is a labor of love from start to finish, using ethically sourced wool and all natural dyes. Artisans harvest the wool fibers then use a natural soap made of a root called amole. Once clean and dry, the fibers are carded by hand, then spun with a spinning wheel. The yarns are then hand dyed, dried, and ready for the traditional pedal loom. Some patterns feature traditional Zapotec designs while others feature more modern approaches. Use these textiles as a rug in low-traffic areas, a hanging wall tapestry, or decoratively draped over a chair or sofa.
