The Making of the Corpus Christi Carpet

The Making of the Corpus Christi Carpet in La Orotava, Tenerife

In La Orotava, Tenerife, under an awning in the square in front of the town hall, alfombristas (carpet makers) work on a carpet made of sands from Mount Teide for the "octava" (eighth day) of Corpus Christi - i.e. the following Thursday after the date of the religious feast - for Día de las Alfombras (Carpet Day).
