Featured Reviews on Zapotec Wool Rugs
Nearly 15 years ago, I spent time in Oaxaca and visited Teotitlan del Valle, the village where most of these beautiful weavings are created (perhaps I even stopped by Albertos shop). I was unable to purchase a rug at that time, so it gives me much joy to have discovered Novica and to now have Albertos gorgeous rug warming my bedroom floor. Muchisimas gracias!
It most probably is, like all others I bought from you, a joy to see and to own. It was a gift for a dear friend in Italy. Unfortunately DHL screwed up the shipping early on sending it around all over Europe and the US. By the time it arrived in Italy a week later Covid-19 had caught up with Italy and it now sits in a DHL warehouse in Bergamo, unattended.. If my friend will ever get it is a good question..
Exactly What I Wanted
My girlfriend and I moved from New Jersey to Sedona 8 months ago. We are in the process of decorating in a manner that is southwestern without being cliche, without being cartoonish. We looked at Zapotec rugs in local stores. They were what we were looking for in the way of rugs. I was prepared to pay the high price they were asking, but we didnt find exactly what we wanted. Then I happened on Novica, had never heard of this site, and found exactly what I wanted, for much less money, and a lot more of that money going to the artisan. This piece by Alfredo Ruiz is simply superb!
