Donated by: Caravanserai Project & Mozaique

Handwoven and handmade by women artisans in Maramures, Romania, this 5' x 7.5' rug is made of 100 percent locally sourced undyed wool. The artisans are using traditional overlay of weaving and braiding techniques. The production process is 100 percent manual. The color accent is handwoven in the rug.

Mozaique works alongside artisans to help them develop new designs rooted into heritage techniques and bring their products to the international market. Maria, the partnering artisan making this particular rug, is committed to continuing her craft, as she has been for the past forty eight years. It takes sixty hours of work for each rug to come to life, over a year long period of time. Weaving was a community affair, a mother daughter bonding time and wisdom sharing treat.
