Nopal Rug

A contemporary classic, our Nopal rug is just what’s required to revive a living room thanks to its bold organic pattern.

The Nopal rug is hand woven in Mexico on a traditional loom. This cozy rug is hand made by a family of artisans in Teotitlan del Valle, a town in the central valleys of Oaxaca, Mexico. Our craftsman works with his family and community.

Coutume was inspired by organic Mexican motifs, typical of the region, representing the flowers of prickly pears, called "Nopal". These patterns have been used in the Zapotec culture since generations. The minimalist design mixes ancestral techniques and modern graphics. 

The wool is colored using 100% biodegradable natural dyeing techniques. The pigments are derived from plants such as: tree bark, flowers, nuts or even local insects.

Ideal for bedroom or living room décor, this cozy wool rug is also available in Ochre yellow or Black, in standard S to XL format or made-to-order.
