Featured Reviews on Mexican Zapotec
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!
Very special bedspread
Love the way this natural bedspread looks on our king carved mesquite bed. Neutral color allows me to dress bed with pillows and throws of different colors at different times of year.
Essential autumn accessory
I adore this bag, the symbolism and colors paired with contemporary baguette style achieve an all at once primitive and modern concept . Strap length is just right for snug fit without being too tight. I would love to see this in a tote, possibly more colors? I?d buy again if different bag styles and design options presented. Excellent symmetry, classic artistry!
Alberto Ruiz Traditional handwoven Zapotec rugs and accessories
"I especially like diamond motifs, as they represent a kind of maguey coat of arms seen at Monte Albán. They exemplify my Zapotec heritage."

Oaxaca Barro Negro Decorative Ceramic Floral Motif Low Vase, "Oaxacan Vessel"
This low and wide decorative vase is reminiscent of the look of antique perfume bottles or ancient vessels for aromatic oils. Anakarem works in the time-honored black pottery tradition of Oaxaca, with techniques learned from her father. The fired clay is burnished to a sheen with a piece of quartz or obsidian and fired in a wood-burning kiln, which transforms the clay and gives it a lustrous black color. The bowl of the vase has a round flower motif made through a combination of embossing and decorative cutouts.
