"Zapotec Handwoven Accent Rug "Vibrant Horizon""
Nicely woven rug with a tight weave and I particularly like the colours which work well with the bedspread and curtains in my bedroom. This rug is a nice addition to the Zapotec rugs I purchased in Teotitlan del Valle 25 years ago. Gracias SeÃ±or Ruiz.
