As you can probably surmise by looking at my blog or shop, I’m emphatically drawn to anything bright, colorful, psychedelic and fabulous! That is why I could not wait until Easter to write this post. I found these amazing carpets and had to share the trippyness with you yes I just just made up a word!) They are called Alfombras and are temporary street carpets made from hand-dyed sawdust, rice, flowers, and other vegetable material. They originated in Guatemala and are made during their Holy Week / Easter celebration. I am amazed at how intricate some of the patterns are and the vibrancy of the colors.
I believe that colors can invoke feelings of happiness, clarity and a variety of moods, so I immediately copied several pics into my inspiration folder for later viewing. My friend Leanne blogs about color theory and explains it better than I ever could, so check out her blog Rainbow Revolution for more insight on this trippyness! O.K., I’ll stop now!)
Here are some pictures of these fantastic magical carpets…..
