Details

Magnificent earth tones that capture the beauty of the Mexican countryside are achieved with natural dyes to create stripes along this Zapotec area rug. Gregorio Ruiz of the Ruiz Bazan family designs the rug, which is woven by hand of wool on an artisanal loom. He adds geometric designs that accentuate the stripes for a home accent that brings the spirit of Oaxaca to your home. The rectangular rug is finished with fringes at each end.

"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."

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.
