The Luz Rug design was inspired by the geometric shapes you often see in the work of the Zapotec tribes of Oaxaca. Ryan created a modernized version in the Luz by simplifying the shapes, using the two contrasting colors of black and natural, and playing with the scale, angles, and spacing of each element. The Luz features black and natural 100% alpaca fiber, which is strong, yet soft and elegant. The fiber is naturally dyed and spun by hand, then each rug handwoven one at a time on a pedal loom in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico by our friend and artisan Bumaro. Each rug can take up to two months to complete. Loom weaving has taken place just this same way for many many generations by Zapotec artisans in this region. This amazing piece of collectible craftsmanship will likely last more than a lifetime with the proper care and cleaning.
