I have three beautiful Ushak rugs and wanted a different style from the east. This rug is now on my living room floor. I love the coloration -- the blues, the pinks, and the fact that it combines Islamic and Hindu styles in one rug. Much praise to the designer.
The Hummingbird is beautifully made, colors are exactly as shown in photos online, and gorgeous. We display it as a wall hanging. We received it from Peru within 2 weeks!
Mexican Zapotec Rug (2.5x5), "Summer Sky"
Splendidly woven by hand, this radiant rug conveys the warmth of the Mexican sky. Mario Chávez works in virgin wool to created intricate geometric motifs. Their symmetry and beauty are astonishing.
Titled "Fiesta oaxaqueña" in Spanish.
Because each rug is individually woven, measurements could vary +/- 1 inch (3 cm) (1.2 in).
Zapotec Wool Striped Area Rug (6.5x10), "Sunshine Constellation"
Stars seem to sparkle in a vast constellation of yellow and terracotta tones. Alfredo Ruiz selects a traditional motif for this handsome rug, woven on a specially-built extra wide handloom. The colors come from natural dyes in a superb example of Zapotec art. Titled "Tierra de Diamantes" in Spanish.
Because each rug is individually woven, measurements could vary +/- 4 inches (10 cm) (3.9 in).
Indian Handwoven Blue and Yellow Striped Dhurrie Rug (2 x 3), "Sky Over Kutch"
Rich shades of blue and aqua evoke the sky over Kutch while yellow is as warm as the sun. Woven of cotton on a traditional loom, this beautiful accent rug comes from Sonik Sethi in India. Such handwoven dhurries can take up to four days to complete.
Wool rug (6x9.5), "Hummingbird"
Geometric hummingbirds hover on fields of sunny color. Working in the style of the Nazca plains, Cerapio Vallejo creates his own interpretation of the renowned geoglyphs. He weaves the precise lines on a traditional handloom, and finishes the starkly contemporary rug with fringe.
Titled "Picaflor" in Spanish.
