"Durable Beautiful Rug"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I purchased Irene Ruizs Fire in the Sky rug several years ago. My rug is not thin and is placed in a high traffic section of my living room. I live in the Pacific Northwest and Irenes rug has stood up to dirt and grime from four sets of dirty boots on rainy days. The rainy season lasts a very long time in the Northwestern United States. All I need to do is vacuum the rug and the brilliant beautiful colors shine through. I would recommend this rug to anyone who wants to purchase beauty, quality and durability. The only maintenance I have done to the rug is retie the white fringe knots. I have had to retie the knotted fringe on any of the wool and or cotton/wool blend rugs I have purchased from other countries. That is not exceptional maintenance. Novica sells quality products at reasonable prices. Irene Ruiz weaves quality rugs.

Every time I walk into my bathroom I admire this rug which is a focal point and determined the colors I painted the room with. Carefully woven, wonderful pattern and very clear design.
