"This is a treasured heirloom that I can past down."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I am very proud of my wool rug, Claret Rhombi because it is a outstanding heirloom that everyone gives compliments every time they walk in the house. I share with them where I received it and let them know that can help others by going into Novica.com and become partners with this wonderful company! My friends loved the idea of helping others. This work was done with great love and the colors are so majestic with such great impressive beauty that is so and now I have the privilege to past this to my only son. I know he will take pride and treasure this wool area rug as I do.I hope and pray that others will be so happy as we are in displaying this beautiful piece of excellent work in our home. Exquisite, lovely are words that others are describing this elegant rug that is displayed in our living room. Being part of NOVICA has made me and my family very proud of being part of helping others as well. Thank you for this heirloom that I can share in the future with my son as well!!!

"Exactly What I Wanted"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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!

"Perfect!"

I would send a picture of the rug in our mountain cabin but it does not seem possible. This rug is gorgeous and of the highest quality and it goes perfectly in our cabin in front of our wood stove. We could not be happier with it!

"Memories of Home"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The Artist Alfredo Ruiz created this beautiful rug, which will be hung on the wall at my daughters home. She said it is too beautiful to use as a rug on the floor! The blessings this rug have given our family are without count. It is also a talisman that we will be able to visit home in Oaxaca one day. Maybe then we will meet Alfredo too! Thank you for the beautiful art work!
