Details

Evoking the ocean with rich shades of blue, Mario Chávez combines the deep hues of the Pacific with the azure of the Mexican Caribbean. This dazzling handloomed rug invokes the sea with shell motifs inspired by pre-Hispanic art. Concentric crosses complete a modern heirloom. The artisan names the design Caracol in Spanish.

Because each piece is individually woven, measurements could vary +/- 1 inch (3 cm).

Edinburgh,/Sotland/ UK

The rug and its beautiful vibrant colours brought memories of warmer times, when on my frequent Mexico trips, back to cold, dark and wet Scotland - making our winters more bearable. Excellent craftsmanship and also very resilient for daily use - not shredding fibres etc.
