Story Behind the Art:
Alberto Ruiz Garcia is the fourth generation in a family dedicated to weaving Zapotec rugs. 'I remember as a child watching my father working on the loom while my mother and grandmother carded and dyed the wool so that the men could weave it. We shear the wool, spin it and dye it with tints from the cochineal insect, pomegranate peel, bark from the huajal tree that thrives here, as well as oak and pecan bark. Stones, dried flowers, almost all the rocks and flowers here yield natural colors.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
