In the style of Zapotec textiles, this lively table runner will bring a Latin touch to your kitchen or dining room. Members of Mexico's Hernandez Lazo family work with wool, dyeing the yarns with natural colors before carefully weaving them by hand to create the design. Against a body of cherry red, the tree of live hosts several colorful birds. Fringe decorates the ends.
The dyes are taken from natural plants, bark, seeds and cochineal in an ancestral process. Thus, the colors may vary slightly.
