Nature Area Rugs
I love this rug! I have runners and other colorful Mexican textiles under lamps, on furniture, and under my television, and this Zapotec rug by Alberto Ruiz and his wife provides the integration of all the many pieces...It is spectacular! Thank you to Alberto and your su esposa... Norm Meshriy
I love my new rug. The colors are vibrant. The quality and workmanship seem very good. Looks great in my log house.

I have become quite interested in pre hispanic MesoAmerica in the past few years and have been to Teotitlan de Valle, Alberto Ruiz's home town near Oaxaca. I found this item to be of excellent quality and to have several authentic design elements. I particularly like the "Greca" elements similar to those at Mitla. Plus - it looks great! Hope to find his shop his Feb when in Oaxaca.
