Handwoven rug with blue border
Each traditional rug is woven on pedal looms with wool from the region of Oaxaca. Each design is hand-spun and coloured with natural dyes produced from fruits, nuts, plants and insects that have been gathered from the surrounded countryside. Every rug is unique due to the subtle variations in the dye colour and the individual interpretation of the design by the weaver.
The Oaxaca collection is made up of contemporary craft from the southwestern region of Mexico. Earlier in 2016, SCP founder Sheridan Coakley took a trip to the region, where he found a vibrant community of makers whose work is a wonderful fusion of influences. This show presents an idiosyncratic collection of homeware, textiles and decorative objects.
