Irene Ruiz masters the millenary weaving traditions developed by the ancient Zapotec people for the creation of her original rug. She starts by rinsing the newly shorn wool with amole, a local plant, to preserve its luster. Ruiz also prepares her palette of colors with natural dyes such as cochineal for red, indigo for blue and walnut for brown. She weaves the rug on a pedal loom and finishes the fringe by hand.
