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 don't duplicate the full beauty of the colors. It is a simply spectacular throw rug. My only issue is that it is so beautiful I don't want to stand on it! I will be buying Irene's work every time I can think of a way to use it.
