Oaxaca is brimming with culture, tradition and handmade works. With this, we introduce the Oaxaca bathmat – a luxurious beauty that embodies all of the aspects that makes this Mexican state so magical. These mats are made exclusively for our stock on traditional backstrap looms. Comprised of an impressively tight weave of unbleached cotton, intricate detailing, and a hand-knotted fringe, they are available in a choice of natural with paloma grey (SOLD OUT) or porcelain blue.
A collective of artisan women in Southern Mexico create these works by hand, from the backstrap weaving to the custom sewing found in every piece. This association is comprised of 23 women and their families, and has been operating as a self-governed, democratic group for over 40 years.
Approximately 40cm wide x 70cm long (16” wide x 28” long), not including fringe
