El Tono de la Cochinilla Hand-woven Rugs
El Tono de la Cochinilla is a famly homestead in Teotitlán del Valle, where for four generations we have been maintaining a rich tradition of weaving 100% woollen rugs.
Each and every one of our quality pieces is hand-crafted from start to finish; from cleaning, carding and spinning our wool, and then weaving on pine looms.
Two of the most important characteristics you will quickly note in our work are the pre-hispanic designs, and our specialized use of 100% natural dyes extracted from plants, flowers and fruit, each of which is indigenous to our region, and of course the tiny insect known as cochinilla.
These unique color tones add special beauty and uniqueness to our hand-made rugs, tapestries, hand-bags, pillow shams, and more.
We warmly welcome you for a complimentary demonstration, and to simply brouse our workshop and showroom, without any obligation whatsoever.
Today, our weavings receive international recognition for their quality, beauty, and the use of natural materials. We have preserved our ancient traditions, and our work is truly a representation of who we are.
