Story Behind the Art:
'I grew up in Teotitlan del Valle, home of the legendary Zapotec rugs,' says Irene Ruiz. 'I wasn't able to finish school due to financial difficulties. I don't use any chemicals because I want to contribute to the preservation of the environment. I make colors from leaves, seeds and flowers to dye the virgin wool.'
