"I was inspired by the bright colors that are displayed around my village on a feast day," says Mario Chávez. He obtains the vibrant colors form natural dyes before weaving the wool rug on a traditional loom. Chávez incorporates legendary Zapotec motifs, including frieze patterns and flowers amid bands of colors such as green, red, blue, orange and brown.

"Brightened my Day and My Room"

The Colors of My Village rug truly reflects imagination, skill, and joy! It is exactly the brilliant final piece to my bathroom makeover, reflecting the colors of the Talavera backsplash tiles and other accessories, and the mirror frames and cabinet doors that I painted in strong primary colors against yellow/gold walls. It lights up the room! The weaving is precise and the natural colors are surprisingly bright. Mr. Chavez clearly loves his village and its colors.

Thank you Mario Chavez for creating these wonderful rugs


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.
