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.
A clear example is this jarapa in two tones chocolate color and ivory, made with a design based in a beautiful greca that provides a modern look. It can be machine washed.
