This little rug makes me smile every morning
The colors are true to the picture and it is perfectly crafted. It is so soft that it puts a big smile on my face every morning when I get out of bed and again at night. I absolutely love it! Thank you!
Bedroom in Blues
I love the artistic beauty of this rug. The pattern with the colors chosen of deep blue stars in the midnight skies take you away to a different world. The rug is skillfully made with a perfect weave tight and precise. I love it.
Exactly What I Wanted
My girlfriend and I moved from New Jersey to Sedona 8 months ago. We are in the process of decorating in a manner that is southwestern without being cliche, without being cartoonish. We looked at Zapotec rugs in local stores. They were what we were looking for in the way of rugs. I was prepared to pay the high price they were asking, but we didnt find exactly what we wanted. Then I happened on Novica, had never heard of this site, and found exactly what I wanted, for much less money, and a lot more of that money going to the artisan. This piece by Alfredo Ruiz is simply superb!
