Story Behind the Art:
Mexico's Gregorio Ruiz recalls, 'My grandmother would take me to 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. My favorite patterns are of mountains and rows of diamonds because they remind me a lot of my father. I feel proud that my sons also weave. We are able to support our families without having to leave home.'

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.

  • NOT RED LIKE IN PICTURE!!!! Very disappointed!!!

    If you're looking for a red accent this is not it. It is actually terra cotta colored (orange-brown-redish color).

  • Certainly not as bright as in picture

    This table runner didn't really meet my expectations in that it's not as bright as in the picture and it's as if the wool has been shrunk after being made or the weaving has been done too tightly, the runner doesn't sit flat. I still love it as even with the dull colouring it is almost exactly what I wanted and couldn't fine elsewhere but it is ruined by the fact it won't sit nicely on the table so therefore I don't believe it is value for money.

  • Beautiful Pattern

    I had purchased an (approximately) 40 inch weaving from the Ruiz family of weavers from Eziba and it was perfect! This runner is a beautiful pattern and beautiful colors, however it does not lay flat. At first I thought it was from being shipped, but it has laid on my table now for several weeks and still is not flat. It is also a couple inches shorter than specified. (Important to me because my table is 74") However, I will keep it. I love having something that someone hand wove in another part of our world and the colors are exactly the same as in the woven rug under my table.

  • Wool 'Fiery Sky' table runner (Mexico)

    Would have been a beautiful runner if the colors had been as described. The reds are more a brick red, bordering on a terra cotta. Nice runner for the price, though.
