"Memories of Home"

The Artist Alfredo Ruiz created this beautiful rug, which will be hung on the wall at my daughter's home. She said it is too beautiful to use as a rug on the floor! The blessings this rug have given our family are without count. It is also a talisman that we will be able to visit home in Oaxaca one day. Maybe then we will meet Alfredo too! Thank you for the beautiful art work!

Sian

I recently made my first Novica purchase, one of Alfredo's runners... it is so beautiful, it really exceeded my expectations and we're already looking at other designs to buy for the rest of the house. The workmanship, quality and richness of the rug is a delight.
