Story Behind the Art:
'I grew up in Teotitlan del Valle, home of the legendary Zapotec rugs,' says Irene Ruiz. 'I wasn't able to finish school due to financial difficulties. I don't use any chemicals because I want to contribute to the preservation of the environment. I make colors from leaves, seeds and flowers to dye the virgin wool.'
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.
