If you are in the upper villages of the Alpujarra you should definitely visit this authentic rug weaving workshop in Bubión, where traditional "jarapa" rugs are made and sold. Really great colours and if you're lucky when you visit the owner, Ana, will be downstairs in the workshop hard at it at the loom so you can watch them being made. Great to see an old tradition being carried on. Apparently you can also get them made to order, so choose your colours and she will get weaving!

Well worth visiting this shop/workshop. Make sure you go downstairs where there are the old looms that are used to make the jarapas. These are traditional rugs originally made from rags. Great to see this local tradition still going today still using the wooden looms made hundreds of years ago. The rugs themselves are very attractive too!
