We offer a handwoven large Petate Bedroll

The Petate (from the nahuatl word "petatl") is a type of bedroll used in Central and South America. The petate is woven from the fibers of a tule straw.
Most Aztec peoples, and many other pre-Columbian mesoamerican cultures, used the petate as a bed at night and as a seat during the day.
It was also used for drying seeds, grains, tortillas, and other foodstuffs in the sun, to prevent them touching the ground.

It's ideal for decorating rustic South American / Mexican themed homes, hotels or restaurants.

You should expect to receive a unique handwoven peace with a unique design/pattern. The stripes and material colors may vary from the photo shown due to handmade nature and organic origin of each petate.

You may also consider it as organic dog mat.
