Wool rug melange, hand-woven
Entirely hand-made rug by Fatima Gomes. Fatima does it all – sheering, washing, drying, looming, and tufting each carpet. She only uses undyed natural wool. Fatima told us these rugs served in the past as over blankets in the cold winters of Tras-Os-Montes (=behind the mountains). Now, she is the last weaver in the area, still using an old traditional loom. It was such a treat to meet Fatima and help her finalize these rugs.
