Details

Alfredo Ruiz weaves a spectacular Zapotec rug that takes its color from the cochineal insect, native to Oaxaca. In an age where even traditional artisans in Oaxaca are giving up harvesting their own wool and dyeing with natural pigments, this Mexican artisan continues to do both. The bright and bold area rug is a treasure.
