Details

Striking geometric symbols are inspired by ancestral designs seen in ancient temples. Meticulously woven in virgin wool, they grace a colorful crimson rug. Alberto Ruiz García and his wife craft this beautiful Zapotec rug on the handloom, naming the design "Colorido Zapoteca" in Spanish.

Because each rug is individually woven, measurements could vary +/- 4 inches (10 cm).

"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!
