Details

Bright bands of yellow evoke the warm Oaxaca sunshine. Illuminating fields of gentle earth colors, they host stylized stars. Alberto Ruiz García and his wife craft this beautiful Zapotec rug on the handloom, naming the design for the town of "Teotitlán." A deep, rich blue borders the rug.

Because each piece is individually woven, measurements could vary +/- 4 inches (10 cm).

"Beautiful rust coloured will rug"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This rug is absolutely beautiful and I was surprised how soft the wool feels under your bare feet - amazing! The colour is pretty accurately shown in the pictures but the written description of the colours is misleading, as another reviewer noted. Luckily I was banking on it being the colour shown in the pictures -and not the description - the red is actually a rust color, the black is more like charcoal or navy and the green is a yellowy olive green - exactly what I was hoping for. Thank you Albert!!

"Brilliant"

The brilliance of the colors and the intricacy of the pattern are captivating. Knowing it was made by hand makes it special. This might be just a chair cushion but to me, its a work of art.
