Details

Like tongues of fire, lightning bolts of maize and dark blue streak across a background of ardent red. Alberto Ruiz weaves a bold design in virgin wool. Named "Unión de Diamantes" in Spanish, the traditional Zapotec rug is created on the handloom and takes its fiery colors from natural dyes.

Because each rug is individually woven, measurements could vary +/- 4 inches (10 cm).

"Gorgeous isnt good enough to describe this!"

I love this bag! It is a great size, sturdy construction and enough pockets inside to hold my phone, tissues and my kindle. With so many colors in it, it goes with so many things.
