Details

Blossoming in pastel hues, stylized flowers announce the arrival of spring. Neatly woven by hand in virgin wool, the elegant motifs grace a traditional Mexican rug. Gregorio Ruiz Lopez works on the handloom to create designs his father taught him, this one named "Tradicional" in Spanish.

Because each rug is individually woven on handlooms, measurements could vary +/- 2 inches (5 cm), as well as the order of the colors.

"A skillfully made masterpiece."

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.

"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.
