Story Behind the Art:
Alfredo Ruiz says, 'I was born in Oaxaca and learned the handicrafts that my parents made. I was 12 when I created my first rug and I haven't stopped. I believe the art of weaving Zapotec rugs is unique.'
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.

Zapotec rugs and this one is of the same quality and a beautiful addition to my house.Read More
This is a lovely rug, but buyers should know that the green is not as pictured but rather a little more yellow-green, but not at all garish. The colors are harmonious. The only caveat is that if you are seeking a bluish-green, it is not. It is wearing differently from other wool Zapotek rugs we have - more fuzzy, which is likely the type of yarn. It vacuums nicely though and really brightens a space. The Mexican artist has a very good eye for color, design motifs and overall balance. While the tag is missing from the rug, an envelope is included with the name of the artist, which is most appreciated. I am hopefully he will make similar 27"-36" x 96"-120" runners too!Read More
