"A bright bright star"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The artistic design and wonderful quality of weaving in this rug is worth the purchase. It is a beautiful rug except that one color is not quite as pictured. The orange is very bright. On the web site, the orange looks more subdued like a dark coral, which was the main color for which I bought it. I realize colors are not always as shown on computer monitors, but the other colors in this rug ARE as shown. It is only the orange which stands out as brighter. This is the only reason I gave it a 4 istead of a 5 star rating. I would have given it 4.5 but no way to do the 1/2 star ! I have placed it in a location other than what I had intended due to this color difference, but still do love the rug. It is a lovely quality rug. I would order again from this artist, but I would pick my colors more neutrally next time ! Thank you, Delfina Ruiz

"Zapotec beauty"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

It most probably is, like all others I bought from you, a joy to see and to own. It was a gift for a dear friend in Italy. Unfortunately DHL screwed up the shipping early on sending it around all over Europe and the US. By the time it arrived in Italy a week later Covid-19 had caught up with Italy and it now sits in a DHL warehouse in Bergamo, unattended.. If my friend will ever get it is a good question..

"Absolutely gorgeous"

This rebozo is a stunning piece. I am so proud every time I get to use it or demonstrate it. It arrived very quickly, wrapped beautifully, and even had a note about the woman who made it. Well worth the investment and I send anyone who asks about it to this site.
