Details

Working on the handloom, Carmen Ruiz weaves an extraordinary Zapotec shawl. Intricate motifs in green on a black warp evoke the shadowed leaves in Michoacan's avocado groves. A voluptuous hand-tied macramé fringe completes this lovely cotton wrap, which takes its colors from natural dyes.

"Beautiful shawl"

The combination of the black background and the green looks so unique and impressive. I'm looking forward to wear it at the first opportunity.

SF bay area can be quite cool in the evening and I plan to wear it especially when I wear a summery dress.

"Lovely cover, but check the dimensions"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a lovely cushion cover made with high quality textiles in a rich maroon/burgundy tone with white embroidery. It should wear well. My only caveat is that the listing dimensions indicate 20 x 21 or so. In fact, there is a 1.5 boarder around the edge of the cushion, so it actually fits a cushion of more like 16-17 inches across. I allowed for this, so am NOT disappointed, but was as I expected. I have enough cushions that it would have fit at least one of them!

This lovely blanket is even better than I hoped. The quality is exceptional, it is plenty big to cover our king sized bed and it brightens up the room perfectly. Carmen Ruiz is such a talented artist! Thank you, Carmen and Novica.
