Manto de Ofrenda (Sacred Offering of the Wari Culture)

Manto de Ofrenda (Sacred Offering of the Wari Culture)

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 original design "Manto de Ofrenda" symbolizes the offering of gratitude that is central to Andean culture. In this tapestry, you see different offerings of sacred Andean foods: quinoa, uca and paillar.


In traditional Andean culture, offerings were made to the PachaMama (Mother Earth in Quechua) and also to the Apus (Nature Spirits), to the sun and to the moon. Each spirit gives their blessing for a different facet of natural life.

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