Details

For his Zapotec rugs, Mexican artisan Gregorio Ruiz uses the time-honored techniques he learned from the weavers in his family and that includes the use of natural dyes. "I combine natural elements, like flowers, plants, seeds and tree bark when I prepare the dyes I'll use for a specific design; I use lime and salt to fix the colors. I recycle the remaining water so I get different shades of a particular color," he says. Wheat, mahogany, and pine green are some of the hues that appear in this 100% wool rug which is woven using a foot loom. The fringed rug's design is inspired by Zapotec cultural symbols and includes diamond shapes, stripes and fretwork.

"Rug works well in our bedroom."

Beautiful colors and pattern. Fringe is also a nice touch, though a tad uncomfortable when you step on it barefoot. But still glad I purchased this lovely rug! Great craftmanship.
