area rugs - zapotec - 2 x 3 and smaller - wool - blue - mexico
This small rug is beautifully designed and closely woven perfectly. I am very pleased with the workmanship and the vivid colors of the wool. I have several other throw rugs that I purchased in Mexico, and this is the same high artisanal quality that I was accustomed to.

I love the rich colors and I was looking for something that wasn't too 'busy' on the design. I am using this for my dining table top and it looks great. Just because it's called a rug doesn't mean there aren't other uses for it! I have an eclectic mix of southwest and Texas hill country so I don't want to go too heavy on the SW designs. Now I just need to find the perfect centerpiece to go with it.

There aren many 'wow' moments when buying things for the house. I moved into a home in Scottsdale, AZ that had a bathroom with old style Mexican painted tile. I wanted a special throw rug that fit, and of course could not find it. By luck (and Google) I found this site and the work of Irene Ruiz. The picture looked good, so I took a chance. When the rug arrived (in timely fashion and well packed) and I opened it, my first reaction was 'it looks really good'. I put it down on the Saltillo floor, it was "Wow'. The rug is fabulous. It is a perfect weight of fabric, and the weave is very tight. The colors are vivid. Pictures don't duplicate the full beauty of the colors. It is a simply spectacular throw rug. My only issue is that it is so beautiful I don't want to stand on it! I will be buying Irene's work every time I can think of a way to use it.
