"Gorgeous Rug Evoking Memories of Oaxaca"

This rug is amazing! The colors are very vibrant and the craftsmanship is top notch. I have been to Oaxaca many times, and Ms. Ruiz's work is among the best I have seen. It looks fantastic in our home and gets many compliments.

Mary

We purchased ""Dunes"" area rug and the colors are exactly as pictured. The work and artistic design are excellent.

Christine

Thank you for my 'Star of Peace' wool flap bag. It's really beautiful and well made -- I'm just a little late getting around to writing my testimonial. :-)

Donna

I ordered 'Reflections' 4x6 rug and just received it yesterday. It is beautiful and the quality is outstanding. It even came very nicely gift wrapped. If I want to purchase another Zapotec Rug I will definitely look to see what Delfina Ruiz has available first.
