Arraiolos carpets

Candidate for Intangible Heritage of Humanity
  • Events | 1 September, 2015

The Arraiolos carpets are wool carpets embroidered with the same stitch on a jute fabric and cotton oulinho. These rugs are characteristic of Arraiolos, Alentejo one village in Portugal.

The advantages of arraiolos embroidery are that give the upholstery, the necessary strength and consistency, allowing faithful reproduction of the existing geometric and artistic designs.

Considered by many as one of the most important traditional artistic expressions of #Alentejo, the Arraiolos rug is now a candidate for Intangible Heritage of Humanity!
