Mexican artisan Alfredo Ruiz descends from weavers who continue to make wool rugs using time-honored techniques. The wool is washed using soap made from the root of the amole plant, a type of agave. It's then carded, spun, and dyed with natural dyes derived from local ingredients; rugs are woven using a foot loom.

Here he presents a gorgeous hand crafted Zapotec rug made from 100% wool. A geometric design in tangerine, navy blue, goldenrod, and cardinal red, highlighted with touches of cerulean, makes for a unique design inspired by the colors of the landscapes of the weaver's home state of Oaxaca.

I recently made my first Novica purchase, one of Alfredo's runners... it is so beautiful, it really exceeded my expectations and we're already looking at other designs to buy for the rest of the house. The workmanship, quality and richness of the rug is a delight.
