Mexican Multicolor Runner Rugs
I love the vibrant colours of this beautiful new rug. I have already received compliments on it, love the feel of the wool under my feet, and am so happy I purchased it. Thank you Gregorio Ruiz for creating such a vibrant original piece! It helps warm up a Canadian winter!
I needed another Zapotec rug for my hallway where I have two other rugs with this design. (I may have purchased one from Novica years ago). I was very pleased to see this (same size, same design) still available. It arrived beautifully packed, with a personal note, and as a weaver myself, I appreciate the quality workmanship. My other Zapotec rugs have lasted very well - no colors running onto carpet beneath (like the red from a kilim did). I have been to Teotitlan del Valle in the past and there are many weavers there producing rugs of varying quality. Gregorio's work is excellent.
If you are fond of bright colors, you will be pleased. My son placed it on the hallway of has new apartment and loves it. He likes the work of native weavers mixed with more traditional pieces.. It is well made, thick, and well, gorgeous. Excellent crafstmanship, and it came beautifully wrapped.
