I have just received the Red Fire Opal rug woven by Irene Ruiz. It looks absolutely stunning, beyond my expectation. The vibrant colors bring energy and life to my living room. I have to visit this place and see where the inspiration comes from. Irene, muchas gracias per esto tesoro. Espero di encontrar usted en persona.

I just purchased three of these for my living room and they are all just fantastic looking. The colors are amazing, and they bring a real warmth to the room. They go very nice with everything, including new cork floor.

"Image Cant Compare to Actual Product"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Opened the container, removed the rug and was gobsmacked speechless by its beauty. Id need a thesaurus to find enough adjectives for this glorious flat weave rug. Vibrant colors, masterful weaving, superb pattern, soft hand (meaning good wool well prepared). This might have to go on a wall as art because stepping on it would be almost an insult.
