Details

Glowing colors from natural dyes conjure the embers of a campfire in the sierra. This delightful rug by Gregorio Ruiz features intricate geometric designs. Masterfully woven by hand of soft virgin wool, it is a superb example of Zapotec weaving.

Because each rug is an individual work of art, the tones, motifs and order of colors may vary slightly according to the artisan's inspiration.

Titled "Líneas Multicolores" in Spanish.

"Perfect match"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I needed another Zapotec rug for my hallway where I have two other rugs with this design. (I may have purchased one from Novica years ago). I was very pleased to see this (same size, same design) still available. It arrived beautifully packed, with a personal note, and as a weaver myself, I appreciate the quality workmanship. My other Zapotec rugs have lasted very well - no colors running onto carpet beneath (like the red from a kilim did). I have been to Teotitlan del Valle in the past and there are many weavers there producing rugs of varying quality. Gregorios work is excellent.

In addition to the vibrant but not garish colors, this rug is beautifully made.
