    Story Behind the Art:
    Mexico's Gregorio Ruiz recalls, 'My grandmother would take me buy wool. She'd wash it, card it, spin it and dye the yarn. This job is always done by women. By the age of 12, I could reach the pedals of the handloom. Ever since, I've woven rugs and now my sons have also learned our craft.'

  • Not exactly as advertized

    I gave this a good rating because the fabric was handcrafted, natural and not synthetic. The color was good but not as vibrant as the pix. However, although the lengthand width were accurate the thickness was way off. It was perhaps 3/8" thick whereas the copy said it was 2" thick. Huge difference!

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? I was close but not as vibrant.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality was okay.
    • How accurate was the sizing? The length and width were accurate but not the thickness!
    • Would you recommend this to a friend? No

  • re: a runner for a large dollhouse?

    I've given this one star because it is so small that it really doesn't work as a runner - at least not in a "normal" floor space. But I only have myself to blame, so I ad libbed and used it on a sofa table. Obviously, I paid too much money for a runner for a sofa table! None of this is Overstock's fault. Mea culpa!!! I really imagined that this would be a lot bigger. I should have known better. The dimensions are prominently displayed.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? The color is great
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is great
    • How accurate was the sizing? The sizing was accurate. It was my fault that I didn't pay closer attention.

  • Zapotec Wool Runner

    If I had read the description more carefully, I would not have been surprised at the size. For our home, it is too narrow to serve as a rug, so we have hung it on the wall. The color blends well with other rugs we have purchased.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent. What I expected of Zapotec Work
    • How accurate was the sizing? Very
    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
