Black and White Floral Area Rug
The Black and White Floral Area Rug features a single black rose in the center of a natural wool background. If it were a painting, it might be simply be named Black Rose on Canvas. The rug is entirely handmade, incorporating the imperfection of an ancient sheep’s wool loom weaving technique practiced in the central-western zone of the province of Santiago del Estero, Argentina. This technique is intentionally empathetic to the weavers, allowing their emotions, effort, human error to be present in and a feature of the final product. Their presence in each woven thread makes each Mantara rug imperfect by nature, thereby making it human.

– At home, you can vacuum your rug but use a vacuum without the brush attachment as this produces pilling and can damage the fibers.
– Vacuum the rug one to two times a week, especially in high traffic areas
– Treat stains with a mixture of vinegar and warm water as soon as possible. Lightly foam the mixture on a sponge and press gently in circles to prevent the stain from getting deeper into the textile. Pat dry with a clean white towel.
– For deep cleaning, we recommend dry cleaning your rug, it is best to avoid introducing chemical or liquid cleaners to the fibers if possible.
– We also offer personalized cleaning consultations if necessary, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a video call.
Mantara, founded by Carolina Pavetto, is a project that centers on the pillars of fair trade and circular design. With each and every thread, Mantara’s pieces give new value to the ancestral techniques practiced by the artisans of Santiago del Estero, Argentina. The studio believes in the creative force of design, in both the fabric they build together with local artisans and the designs that they develop and share throughout the world.
Mantara is dedicated to material honesty and maintaining the integrity of the natural fabrics. Their raw material is harvested with deep respect for the environment and they do not use dyes or subject their wool to any chemical processes.
