Fabrica Alentejana Blanket Big Rug


The Big Rugs : 120Cm/180CM

We made 2 color variants of these and only 4 per color are made .

Recognized by the New York Times as one of only three original secular wool handicrafts to still exist in Europe, the Fábrica Alentejana de Lanifícios (Wool Factory of Alentejo) is one of the most recognized and prized wool factories in the country.

Known to Portuguese people as Mizette, after the owner, Mizette Nielsen, they are still handcrafted in Alentejo, more specifically in the Reguengos de Monsaraz region, where they produce all sorts of blankets and rugs and carpets, with a team of qualified professionals using only the most high-quality ingredients to produce some of the best wool products in the country.Founded in the early 19th century, the blankets and wool products produced by the factory were used by local shepherds to protect themselves from the cold, and as such most of the patterns and colours used are closely related to Alentejo, with its floral fields of orange, yellow, brown and red, and motifs that resemble the typical houses from Alentejo.

These are all made to our specifications and we have made 4 different rugs and only 4 of each . Next production we'll do something different . So they are limited to 4 per design . Exclusively for Eat Dust .
