Story

Using time-honoured traditions, our artisan partners in Oaxaca blend the ancestral heritage of generations who came before them with beautiful, contemporary designs.

For the OAXACA ATELIER, quality is in the details. In this small but vibrant community, there is a deep tradition of weaving with the pedal loom, introduced by the Dominican monks in the 16th century. Rugs are meticulously handwoven, and each work is the unique combination of natural fibers, dyes, history, culture and design.

Custom sizes and colours available on request. Contact our team for more details. Please allow 3-5 weeks lead time for each order.

Our Weaving Partners From Oaxaca

"I'm passionate about weaving, and it lets me support my wife and son. They are my biggest motivation to continue working. Each rug teaches me something new about becoming a great artisan. This art is something I'd like to preserve, since weaving offers my community a way to keep our history and traditions alive."

Located in the southern colonial highlands of Mexico, Oaxaca is a cultural mecca that is rich in customs and traditions. It is also home to our artisan José. José uses the pure hand-spun wool of local sheep and completely natural dyes to create these stunning rugs.

From designing to dyeing and then weaving, José is committed to carrying on this ancient art. Since he began weaving at nine years old, he has known that the pieces he creates are keeping the rich history of his community alive. In this small community, there is a deep tradition of weaving with the pedal loom, introduced to Oaxaca by the Dominican monks in the 16th century.

José weaves rugs dyed with organic colours derived from the plants that flourish in the area. Watching José transform a handful of leaves or a pinch of ash or a drop of citrus into brilliant hues is nothing short of magic. This is where your rug comes from – a combination of nature, tradition, and alchemy – and from José, who weaves the three together.
