"I was inspired by the bright colors that are displayed around my village on a feast day," says Mario Chávez. He obtains the vibrant colors form natural dyes before weaving the wool rug on a traditional loom.

"Brightened my Day and My Room"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The Colors of My Village rug truly reflects imagination, skill, and joy! It is exactly the brilliant final piece to my bathroom makeover, reflecting the colors of the Talavera backsplash tiles and other accessories, and the mirror frames and cabinet doors that I painted in strong primary colors against yellow/gold walls. It lights up the room! The weaving is precise and the natural colors are surprisingly bright. Mr. Chavez clearly loves his village and its colors.

How beautiful these pillow covers are! They are so well-made, and they are much thicker than I thought they would be. Such brilliant colors and design. Muchas gracias, Mr. Chavez, for bringing a little piece of sunshine into my home.

I love the artistic beauty of this rug. The pattern with the colors chosen of deep blue stars in the midnight skies take you away to a different world. The rug is skillfully made with a perfect weave tight and precise. I love it.
