"Magical Weaving"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is weaving of a wonderful quality; regular, tight and even. I am not an expert, but I collect Navajo weavings and I think I know fine weaving when I see it. Gregorios weaving has, as I say, a wonderful finesse. The design is simple and pleasingly elegant, with bold diamonds separated by bands of vibrant colour, all on a lovely, neutral ground. It is now the focal point of a just decorated first floor landing.Should I require a similar rug, I would be very happy to go back to Gregorio. Quality always shows. Senor Ruiz has it in abundance.

"Gorgeous"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This small rug is beautifully designed and closely woven perfectly. I am very pleased with the workmanship and the vivid colors of the wool. I have several other throw rugs that I purchased in Mexico, and this is the same high artisanal quality that I was accustomed to.

"Gregorio Ruiz is a Master Craftsman!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Received my Stars on Earth Zapotec rug yesterday and was blown-away by the product quality and the artistic beauty Gregorio Ruiz created. I will continue to follow Gregorio. Also, first time discovering Novica and, my oh my, what a joy. Received a personalized postcard from Novica Mexico and the descriptive tag accompanying the rug brought great warmth and joy to this item. So happy to discover this site and the people making it a international success story.

"A skillfully made masterpiece."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

What I love about this beautiful rug: the colours of the wool are subtle yet confident, the design is full of life and meaning and the texture has a softness that is also firm, with strength and resilience being two characteristics that jump out. This exemplary rug graces a large ottoman as I cannot bear to walk on it! Thank you for your masterfully woven rug, Gregorio.
