"This is the art my parents dedicated their lives to, and it's what I know best.""I'm from Oaxaca where I grew up with my parents, who have been artisans for as long as I can remember. They weave Zapotec rugs and taught me to weave. I perfected the techniques through practice.
"When I was 18, I created my first piece. It was a rug sample, but I didn't start producing them myself until I had a family of my own. This is the art my parents dedicated their lives to, and it's what I know best. I've been crafting carpets now since 2004.
"I enjoy playing with my children, which is my principal occupation. They are my inspiration; they are the source of my ideas and the reason I want to continue doing what I enjoy so much. Thank you for the opportunity to be here with you in Novica."

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

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. :-)

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.
