Ave Pescador (The Fishing Bird) - Nogal
Organic 100% wool rug, all natural plant dyed. All of the locally sourced wool in this rug is handspun, hand dyed and hand woven on a traditional floor loom, a process that takes 120-150 hours for a rug of this size.
The background in this weaving is made from Black Walnut leaves, fruit and branches.
The Ave Pescador in this tapestry represents any of a number of fishing birds that are found on the ocean shores of Peru – a pelicans, say. In this stylized design, you see the fishing birds as well as small, luminescent fish, called borrachitos, that live near rocks on the Peruvian coast.
This rug measures 3' x 4', a versatile size that also makes a lovely wall hanging.
All of the Woven Tuna weavings are designed to last for a lifetime. The natural dyes are colorfast and designed to last. To clean, handwash in cold water, using soap, shampoo or laundry detergent and hang dry. Rugs can be vacuumed as well.
