Our rugs are woven in the traditional way typical of Latin American rugs, with the looms used usually being as wide as the arm span of the weaver. Depending on the width of the loom, the rug may have a discrete joint where the rug panels are joined together, which is a beautiful, rustic element of the handwork. The weavers use designs and colourways that are unique to Argentina and cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The colours are inspired by the dry, sun-baked forests and desert landscapes of their homeland. From creamy white to honey colours to terracotta, a mix of shades gives these textiles an organic, elegant charm. Each rug is made from pure, hand-spun virgin wool. The raw and unique yarn has gentle, natural variations and adds another dimension to the rugs. The entire process, since the animal is sheared by hand, takes place within the same community.
When you buy a By Native carpet, you become part of a project that offers weaving families in remote areas a perspective through fair trade.

Good to know:
The wool for our rugs comes from small sheep farms in the heart of the dry forest, the same area where our rugs are hand-woven. The wool is always processed by hand: It is sheared, washed, dyed with vegetable dyes depending on the design and spun by hand.
All carpets are made on traditional looms and bear the weaver's signature in her individual design. A strict quality control is carried out before each delivery. As all carpets are completely handmade and unique, they may show slight variations in colour, details and dimensions.
With your purchase, you will receive detailed instructions on how to clean and care for your carpet so that you can enjoy it for many years to come.
Always use a non-slip underlay under handmade carpets, placed on the floor and under the carpet.
We offer free underlays for carpets purchased in our online shop. Our high-quality underlays are made of jute and natural latex and are suitable for any surface.
Vacuum your carpet regularly. It is very important that vacuuming is done gently and without friction. Use the largest attachment on the hoover hose and make sure it does not have a brush. Avoid direct, strong sunlight or other intense light as it can discolour the carpet over time.
Because wool is naturally self-cleaning and our carpets contain natural lanolin, they repel water and dirt. This makes wool items extremely easy to care for and lighter colours less prone to stains than other light fibres.
If cleaning is still necessary (over a long period of time or due to stains), we recommend that you only contact a carpet specialist and dry cleaner who are experienced and specialised in carpets.
"We are a small group of weavers in the heart of the dry forest. Here, where the sun pierces the landscapes and the sky freezes in its intense blue, the carpets have rich hues that make them unique."
