A to Z Mondays ~ The Letter Z

ZAPOTEC COLLECTION

The Zapotec Collection is the finest weaving available from the master weavers of the ancient village of Teotitlan del Valle in the state of Oaxaca, in southern Mexico.

Patrick and I purchased 2 Zapotec (100% wool) rugs while we were in Prescott, Arizona for Valentines day this year. We left one on my sweater chest down in Phoenix, and he just brought the other up here when he flew up last week. They were all so pretty I had a hard time choosing just two, but I couldn’t be a greedy guts. The green one in this picture---with the lovely Vanna Rocket Dog---is my favorite.

Please go to Jen’s for more A to Z bloggers. Happy A to Z Monday friends!!

love, Cassie

I love it! the Mexican weavers and pottery makers are among the best. Your blanket is lovely, and the cute pooch makes it that much cuter.

Hi Cassie. Thanks for the background on the Zapotec weaving. It's very interesting (always heard about Zapotec, but never knew much about it until now). And what a cute photo of BRD and that beautiful rug! Hope you guys are doing well. Regards to Patrick. ~John
