Made from locally sourced 100% wool weft with a cotton warp, this Center Grid 02 Wool Rug is made in Teotitlán Del Valle in Oaxaca, Mexico by Zapotec weavers who have mastered the technique of rug-making for generations. Zapotec was a culture that thrived in this region of Mexico from 700 B.C to 1521 A.D., until the arrival of the Spanish conquerors. The rug is hand-woven using a pedal loom and hand-dyed. Both sides of the rug are woven and it measures  53l x 70"w. The rug has a pile height of 0.25". All-surface rug pad recommended.

The Center Grid 02 Wool Rug was conceived by Dominican designer Javier Reyes, whose rrres Studio is based in Oaxaca. The design incorporates a cross, a reference to the important role that Catholicism plays in Latin American culture, particularly in Mexico. “The horizontal lines represent time, divided by a vertical line which represents the present,” explains Reyes.

    rrres Studio

    Handmade on pedal looms by Zapotec weavers in Oaxaca, Mexico, these throws and rugs were conceived by Dominican designer Javier Reyes, whose studio is based in Oaxaca. “This project is the result of a collective work between people, places, cultures and heritage,” states Reyes. “Everything is proudly made in Latin America.”

    “Textile making is one of the most developed practices in Oaxaca and the craft has played a central role in all of the region’s indigenous cultures. The Zapotec people have mastered the art of rug making. I began working with them after I met a couple from the community, Manuel and Lucrecia. I lived with them off and on for a year.”

    The Center Grid 02 Rug makes a reference to Catholicism with a cross incorporated into the design. “I do not know if I can talk about Latin America without touching on this topic. Oaxaca provided great help in understanding our history in Latin America. It became clear to me what was the past, present and future in relation to our culture.”

  • A Hands-On Process
    A Hands-On Process

    “Most artisans are used to repeating a certain pattern in the way they work, so new ideas are often misinterpreted. I moved to Oaxaca to work closely with the weavers, and to create a system that speaks to them in their own artisan code. It is essential to my process that there’s trust between us. The relationship is everything.”
