OUR PROCESS

We make nature smile

Our aim is to go back to the origins, rediscovering and reinterpreting traditions, sourcing the best materials

Cultivation

Our natural fiber rugs are made of Fique, the Colombian agave palm we work with. The fiber comes from Santander, Curití, where we proudly support farmer families.

To preserve the environment, our Fique is sustainably extracted only from the outer leaves, so that the plant can continue to grow.

Leaves are then cut, dried, combed, and dyed so these can be used as threads.

Weaving

Once the Fique fibers have been brushed, dyed and spun, they are wrapped in cones, ready for the final transformation. One step closer to the beautiful TAPISTELAR Rug.

On manual looms, the colored threads are then woven with metals, such as copper and tin. Look for the final product at our Rug Shop.

Manual Loom

We leverage autochthonous manual skills & our entrepreneurial desire to transform knowledge and manual work into development opportunities for small communities in Colombia.

Our rugs are created using a low ecological impact production process. Take a look at some projects we have participated in.
