Stripes of burnt orange and sand are elaborated with geometric motifs, evoking the beauty of a Mexican desert, achieved with natural dyes taken from local plants. Says Jose Mendoza, "The things I enjoy most in life are weaving and creating designs." He weaves this rectangular area rug by hand, using wool for a piece of home decor that carries on traditional artisanal practices. He finished each end with delicate fringes.
