'Hola! I'm from a town in Oaxaca, Mexico dedicated to weaving. I am the fourth generation of my family to practice this craft. We spin and dye wool using dyes from bugs, rocks and flowers. We immerse the hanks of yarn for half an hour and then dry them. We use reed bobbins, and we wind the yarn on them, warp the handloom, and weave the rug.'
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.
Tip: We recommend the use of a non-skid pad to keep the rug in place on smooth surfaces.
All rug sizes are approximate. Due to the difference of monitor colors, some rug colors may vary slightly. Overstock.com tries to represent all rug colors accurately. Please refer to the text above for a description of the colors shown in the photo.

I was so impressed with the rug when I opened up the package. The colors are so bright and crisp. I bought this for my new entryway and after seeing how beautiful it is, I decided to hang it on my wall instead. My only complaint was that it took longer to be shipped to me than my other orders I've received from Overstock. I ordered another rug and can't wait for it to arrive.Read More
