"This is the art my parents dedicated their lives to, and it's what I know best."
"I'm from Oaxaca where I grew up with my parents, who have been artisans for as long as I can remember. They weave Zapotec rugs and taught me to weave. I perfected the techniques through practice.
"When I was 18, I created my first piece. It was a rug sample, but I didn't start producing them myself until I had a family of my own. This is the art my parents dedicated their lives to, and it's what I know best. I've been crafting carpets now since 2004.
"I enjoy playing with my children, which is my principal occupation. They are my inspiration; they are the source of my ideas and the reason I want to continue doing what I enjoy so much. Thank you for the opportunity to be here with you in Novica."
3 Testimonials for Delfina Ruiz
We purchased ""Dunes"" area rug and the colors are exactly as pictured. The work and artistic design are excellent.
I ordered 'Reflections' 4x6 rug and just received it yesterday. It is beautiful and the quality is outstanding. It even came very nicely gift wrapped. If I want to purchase another Zapotec Rug I will definitely look to see what Delfina Ruiz has available first.
