Durability & Care

Due to the tightness of the handspun wool and the high lanolin content, the rugs require little care. The lanolin functions as a stain and spill retardant. They can be placed in a high traffic entry and they also look great on the wall. They are completely reversible and machine washable.

ArtAndes rugs are handcrafted by highly skilled Peruvian weavers.

Incredibly complex in technique and rich in cultural heritage, the rugs will ground a room and allow you to build a delightful decor around them. The rugs are durable and can stand up to rugged use. Artful to look at, organic in nature & highly functional in performance. The heirloom quality is in the tightness of the weave. A tapestry weave offers a great reversibility bonus, and the wool is rich in lanolin: a stain resistant feature. They are as close to a magic carpet as it gets!

In Environment

Weaving on a treadle loom, the weaver passes every inch of every piece of yarn through his hands on his way to creating a piece of long lasting, functional art. This type of loom is used for the complicated weft face weaving technique. The use of Alpaca fiber or sheep wool, the time tested spinning and dying methods, the care and attention to detail of the workmanship — all combine to produce extremely durable rugs that are meant to be used and enjoyed and will make a significant impact on an interior. Walk all over them, all the time — they will only get better with age.
