"I believe the art of weaving Zapotec rugs is unique. My inspiration comes from everything I see around me – the landscapes, nature, people and animals."
"Hola, I'm Alfredo Ruiz Ruiz. I was born in 1989 in a small Oaxaca town where I grew up together with my brothers and sisters. We spent our childhood playing and learning the handicrafts that my parents have practiced all their lives. From the time I was a boy, I wanted to weave the beautiful rugs my family crafted. When I was 12, I created my first rug in 100% wool. I still have it in my bedroom to look at it every day and motivate myself to continue doing good work.
"From that moment on, I haven't stopped doing what I love. I finished junior high school, and now I have my own workshop. I believe the art of weaving Zapotec rugs is unique. My inspiration comes from everything I see around me – the landscapes, nature, people and animals.
"Now my greatest challenge will be to weave more complex designs of excellent quality each day for you. I invite you to choose my rugs – I know you're going to love my pretty designs."
