Chakana of the Winter Solstice

Chakana of the Winter 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 winter solstice chakana weaving is dyed with a special combination of black walnut and cochineal dyes, with a border of tara.


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