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).

At the time, I did not realize how lucky we were that it was impossible to find a living room rug locally. I finally discovered Novica online and immediately found this perfect rug: gorgeous colors; amazing quality & workmanship; very reasonable price; and best of all, we got to support the talented artist who made it!
- Perfect wall hanging or floor rug
