Details

Primary hues traverse this design in orderly rows, yet some flow like waves while others seem to skip and whirl. Gregorio Ruiz Lopez conjures dancing colors in an extraordinary rug. A superlative example of traditional Zapotec weaving, the piece is handloomed of soft virgin wool tinted with natural dyes. He names it "Danza de Colores" in Spanish.

Because each rug is individually woven on handlooms, measurements could vary +/- 2 inches (5 cm).

"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.
