Made from locally sourced 100% wool weft with a cotton warp, this Place & Space 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.

The Place & Space 02 Wool Rug was conceived by Dominican designer Javier Reyes, whose rrres Studio is based in Oaxaca. The design of the rug is inspired by “elements of a structural, architectural and artificial nature, that suggest solid bodies of exterior spaces and sometimes interiors.” The Place & Space 02 Wool Rug measures 53l x 70"w.

    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.”

    A Zapotec Tradition

    “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.”

    Travels through Mexico

    “Each rug in the Places and Spaces series represents a different place I’ve been to in Mexico—Oaxaca, Merida, Yucatan, Mexico City. The 02 Rug is the house of Maria Gutierres. I met her during my search for artisans in San Marcos Tlapazola. I randomly knocked on her door and we connected immediately. She became my collaborator and she greatly inspires me.”

  • 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.”
