This is a hand spun wool Chimayo rug. The colors are beautiful deep reds, gray-brown, black, creams and a gorgeous blue. The colors are clear and clean.
This Rug lies beautifully flat on the floor or hangs well on the wall. Many of these rugs are found hanging on walls as works of art.
This wool weaving is in what is called the Chimayo weave, which is basically two stripes and a central design. It was begun in the very early years of the 20th Century. Chimayo is a Hispanic Village just north of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Suitable either for hanging on the wall or using on a table top or floor. Soft and pliable with NO moth issues! Nice substantial weight. Originally owned by a professor / rancher. This gentleman was born in 1887.
SIZE: The Rug measures 19 " by 42" including the salvage end ties.
CONDITION: Exceptional. Very very fine pre owned condition. The salvage end ties are totally intact. . I do not see any repairs or snags or holes. The sides have a slight 'wave'.
