The rug is inspired in the sky of Lua'a (Oaxaca), the land of guajes, an incredible acacia tree that grows around around here, it provided us with beans that are pungent like wasabi and nutricious.

Mario is a master weaver and has a great eye for blening colors, from his front yard he overlooks the corn fields and has a wide view of the landscape that inspires him during his weaving. This rug is the perfect blend of blue skies and the blue tinted mountains that surrounds our ancestral lands, the place where the sky kisses the earth.
