Irene Ruiz conjures the blue Pacific off the coast of Oaxaca where colorful starfish play. She weaves virgin wool on the handloom with traditional Zapotec techniques, employing natural dyes derived from native plants.
Titled "Estelar" in Spanish.
There aren many 'wow' moments when buying things for the house. I moved into a home in Scottsdale, AZ that had a bathroom with old style Mexican painted tile. I wanted a special throw rug that fit, and of course could not find it. By luck (and Google) I found this site and the work of Irene Ruiz. The picture looked good, so I took a chance. When the rug arrived (in timely fashion and well packed) and I opened it, my first reaction was 'it looks really good'. I put it down on the Saltillo floor, it was "Wow'. The rug is fabulous. It is a perfect weight of fabric, and the weave is very tight. The colors are vivid. Pictures don't duplicate the full beauty of the colors. It is a simply spectacular throw rug. My only issue is that it is so beautiful I don't want to stand on it! I will be buying Irene's work every time I can think of a way to use it.
