Alpaca Fur Rugs are made by hand in a thousand year old tradition in Peru, the Artisan combines the warmth of natural furs with modern motives to produce a tastefully unique luxury for the home. Whether used as a rug, a bedspread, or a wall hanging of your own design, you´ll have something that will be in the family for generations.
Individual Alpaca pelts are carefully selected for color, texture, and the fine natural shadings best suited for the chosen design; then cut to fit the field definitions in the design. Exacting attention is paid to the nuances carried by the tones and shadings of each piece in the final composition.
The cutting must of course be to the greatest of tolerances for a clean fit after sewing in a patchwork-fashion. Sewing is no less demanding, being done with an especially developed hand-operated sewing machine.
Trimming of the fur provides an even surface, and lends texture to those design fields accented through a structured trimming.
Care: Shaking or vacuuming (be careful not to catch the fur in vacuum rollers) removes dust and most dirt. Should the product still show harder to get at dirt, sprinkle in baby-powder, corn meal, or sawdust; brush this in; and then shake. Spots come out easily with any alcohol-based spot remover. Simplest is a quick trip to the dry cleaners.
Important: The Alpaca is not killed to get his fur; all pelts are from animals that have died a natural death. There is a very simple economic reason for this: the Alpaca is too valuable for it´s wool.
As all of our Alpaca fur rugs are individually hand crafted, all sizes given must be considered as approximations, and minor imperfections and slight variations in design from items depicted should be expected.
