Exactly as advertised
I waited quite awhile for this rug. It was well worth the wait!!! The rug was exactly as advertised. Workmanship was perfection. Love the pattern! Ive ordered other items from Novica in the past and will definitely order again. The service and product are consistently first rate. A pleasure to shop with them.
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!
GREAT WALL HANGING
I bought this to hang on my brick fireplace . I framed it with a cherry wood frame and between the colors in the rug and the frame, it created a stunning display piece. The weaving is good quality.
