Gorgeous Hand Made Rugs Mexican Folk Art by Pedro Montaño PP4445


The International community has recognized Pedro Motaño for his perfectionist skills. Sheep wool and natural fibers are the materials that he uses for his rugs. Motaño uses ancient techniques, mainly in the dyeing of wool with natural dyes, such as plants, roots, mosses, barks and husks of fruits and trees and mainly indigo paste and the cochineal grana. These same techniques are being used in the making of rugs since prehispanic times.

At age 12 he began to weave larger pieces with greater degree of difficulty, they were no longer just valances, nor working with traditional technique, but now he weaves geometric figures of all kinds, mainly diamonds. The Zapotec frets and ornaments used in his work are also found in the ruins of Mitla.
