"Makes me happy every day"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I received a gift certificate and used it to get this rug. It is one of the best presents ever. I put it in the entry hall in my house - a traditional Japanese house! It gets a lot of traffic, including pets, and it has held up perfectly. It washes easily (in cold water) and looks as good as the day it arrived. The colors are bright but not gaudy. It goes very well with the naturals of the Japanese house and I get compliments from visitors all the time. I was a bit worried about the fact that it was wool, but now I think the wool was the best choice. I love this tug - it makes me happy every time I come and go.

How beautiful these pillow covers are! They are so well-made, and they are much thicker than I thought they would be. Such brilliant colors and design. Muchas gracias, Mr. Chavez, for bringing a little piece of sunshine into my home.

"Bedroom in Blues"

I love the artistic beauty of this rug. The pattern with the colors chosen of deep blue stars in the midnight skies take you away to a different world. The rug is skillfully made with a perfect weave tight and precise. I love it.
