Details

Dancing diamonds in joyous colors capture the spirit of Oaxaca's Guelaguetza dance. A Zapotec word meaning "offering," it was originally applied to the harvest celebrations. Gregorio Ruiz weaves a bold and beautiful rug in the traditional Zapotec style.

Titled "Guelaguetza" in the Zapotec language.

Because each rug is individually woven on handlooms, measurements could vary +/- 2 inches (5 cm) (2 in).

I love the vibrant colours of this beautiful new rug. I have already received compliments on it, love the feel of the wool under my feet, and am so happy I purchased it. Thank you Gregorio Ruiz for creating such a vibrant original piece! It helps warm up a Canadian winter!

"Gregorio Ruiz is a Master Craftsman!"

Received my Stars on Earth Zapotec rug yesterday and was blown-away by the product quality and the artistic beauty Gregorio Ruiz created. I will continue to follow Gregorio. Also, first time discovering Novica and, my oh my, what a joy. Received a personalized postcard from Novica Mexico and the descriptive tag accompanying the rug brought great warmth and joy to this item. So happy to discover this site and the people making it a international success story.

"A skillfully made masterpiece."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

What I love about this beautiful rug: the colours of the wool are subtle yet confident, the design is full of life and meaning and the texture has a softness that is also firm, with strength and resilience being two characteristics that jump out. This exemplary rug graces a large ottoman as I cannot bear to walk on it! Thank you for your masterfully woven rug, Gregorio.
