Details

Inspired by ancient designs hewn in stone, Alberto Ruiz García replicates Zapotec archeology with this rug. The intricate central motif is inspired by the maguey plant that flourishes in the sierra. Bands of fretwork adorn this brilliant handloomed rug titled "Raíces Zapotecas" in Spanish.

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

Very nice weaving with vibrant colors and a subtle complexity that that is evident the closer one looks. Excellent crafts-person-ship.

"Gorgeous!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Nearly 15 years ago, I spent time in Oaxaca and visited Teotitlan del Valle, the village where most of these beautiful weavings are created (perhaps I even stopped by Albertos shop). I was unable to purchase a rug at that time, so it gives me much joy to have discovered Novica and to now have Albertos gorgeous rug warming my bedroom floor. Muchisimas gracias!
