Details

A deep blue star appears in perfect symmetry to dominate a deep red universe. Woven by hand, it adorns a bold rug by Mario Chávez. He adds blue borders that emulate ancient pyramids and the Sierra Madre mountains. Titled "Estrella del Universo" in Spanish.

Because each rug is individually woven, measurements could vary +/- 1 inch (3 cm) (1.1 in).

"High Quality"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I purchased another Zapotec rug in the same pattern many years in Taos. I laid this new rug next to the older rug and the quality of the new rug is the same high quality as the older one. Thank you.
