Description
This breathtaking Ayacucho rug comes from Cerapio Vallejo. This amazing craft has been around for centuries in the state of Ayacucho, having been passed down to the Incas after originating among the ancient Wari culture of Peru. Vallejo's preferred technique, called kilin, is characterized by a tight weave. Although extra fabric and 15 days of hard work are required for such rugs, the end result is an extraordinarily clear illustration. Vallejo achieves the rich colors in the rug by using natural dyes.

Titled 'Colibrí' in Spanish.

    Beautiful

    I am looking at this rug as I type. It's very, very beautiful. The quality is superb. I've had this rug for three years now and expect to have this rug for the rest of my life. One tip: buy one of those clear plastic rug-savers if you have a desk chair on it.
