I ordered this rug to go with a shower curtain that has lots of the same colors and the rug came in exactly the same colors as shown. I couldn't be more delighted.
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.
The design and brilliant colors of this runner are absolutely beautiful. It is expertly woven with quality yarns that are thick and soft.
