Mexican Zapotec Multicolor Runner Rugs
I haven't dared to try to steam out the fold down the middle, hopefully it will hang out over time. Well woven, beautiful colors.
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.
"I was born to weave, academia was definitely not for me! I remember skipping school with my friends to swim in the dams and pick guavas."
