  About Pellizas: Pellizas  are a traditional hand woven rag rug from the Dominican Republic. The original  Pelliza  rugs were made with remnants of clothes and fabric and woven into plastic rice sacs. The fabric, which has to be cut in 5” long strips (approximately), is pushed through holes in the sacks and then knotted.
