Natural Wool Throw
$296.00|Made in Mexico
This throw or cover comes from Chamula, Chiapas in Southwestern Mexico. The traditional textile process is quite complex, and includes spinning the wool with a wooden spindle into threads of specific characteristics of tension and thickness to form both the weft and the warp for the loom. Also, the time-consuming process of weaving the threads with a back-strap loom is accompanied by a series of additional steps for washing, carding, felting, dyeing and cotton embroidering.

The gorgeous natural wool throw is the perfect piece for decorating your table. Its unique design and subtle colors make it an eye-catching yet versatile piece. Wonderful on a kitchen table, in the dining room or on the patio, this piece is perfect for serving in every season.
This piece was handmade by talented Mexican artisans using a traditional pedal loom. These have a long history of use, and allow artisans to create larger pieces than backstrap looms. Men are the traditional operators of pedal looms. This is because they take quite a lot of force to operate. Tablecloths, bed covers and curtains are all made using pedal looms.
The first generations of Spanish settlers brought pedal looms to Mexico. They continue to be a popular way for artisans to craft pieces in traditional ways, even though there are mechanical alternatives. The intimate feel of a handmade piece is part of the charm of this tablecloth. Moreover, its rich fabric and cultural heritage make it the ideal addition to the culturally curious modern home.
