area rugs - zapotec - 2 x 3 and smaller - wool - mexico
I love this small Birds of Mexico rug that we purchased though Novica. The birds are beautiful and they really show up against the red background. I am going to put this rug beside our bed in our cabin in Lake Tahoe. The other great thing about this rug is that all the dyes are natural so it will not fade with time.
The rugs I ordered, created by Delfina Ruiz, are beautiful. They are exactly what I wanted. My order experience with NOVICA was excellent. I would highly recommend using NOVICA and will be back for future purchases.

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.
"I especially like diamond motifs, as they represent a kind of maguey coat of arms seen at Monte Albán. They exemplify my Zapotec heritage."
