This is a jarapa (rug) from Alpujarras
, a region in Andalucia, the south of Spain, between the mountains and the seaside. Generally jarapas are crafted with a multicolor thick fabric reusing odds and ends from other works until finishing the piece. Although today these continue to be made with a hand craft process, there is an innovation in the design and processes, to look more complex and contemporary.
This is a very traditional jarapa, made from different green tones with the same techniques that have been in use during generations in this area. It can be machine washed.
