"Beautifully Made and Designed"

Every time I walk into my bathroom I admire this rug which is a focal point and determined the colors I painted the room with. Carefully woven, wonderful pattern and very clear design.

"Wow!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

There aren many wow moments when buying things for the house. I moved into a home in Scottsdale, AZ that had a bathroom with old style Mexican painted tile. I wanted a special throw rug that fit, and of course could not find it. By luck (and Google) I found this site and the work of Irene Ruiz. The picture looked good, so I took a chance. When the rug arrived (in timely fashion and well packed) and I opened it, my first reaction was it looks really good. I put it down on the Saltillo floor, it was Wow. The rug is fabulous. It is a perfect weight of fabric, and the weave is very tight. The colors are vivid. Pictures dont duplicate the full beauty of the colors. It is a simply spectacular throw rug. My only issue is that it is so beautiful I dont want to stand on it! I will be buying Irenes work every time I can think of a way to use it.

Art on my wood floor! But I have it placed in a non travel area so as not to dirty it.
