Thank you Mario Chavez for creating these wonderful rugs

Burkhard

Edinburgh,/Sotland/ UK

The rug and its beautiful vibrant colours brought memories of warmer times, when on my frequent Mexico trips, back to cold, dark and wet Scotland - making our winters more bearable. Excellent craftsmanship and also very resilient for daily use - not shredding fibres etc.
