Chakana for the Summer Solstice

Chakana for the Summer Solstice

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 Chakana (Incan Cross) is a powerful symbol showing a constellation seen at dawn in the Andes, and was used during planting and harvesting, througout the seasons of the year.

This Summer Solstice chakana weaving is dyed with colors of the sun, using special combinations of black walnut and cochineal, with a border of tara.


This rug measures 3' x 4', a versatile size that also makes a lovely wall hanging.
