Zapotec Rug is based on research of many different Zapotec designs. The Zapotec people live in the Oaxacan area of Mexico. Explore the variety of designs that the Zapotec people use to create their beautiful work. The rich colors of wool are similar to the actual rug materials. A variety of wool threads will be used to create this beautiful design including Gloriana Lorikeet, Gumnut's Poppies, Burmilana, & Felicity's Garden. The stitches chosen help depict the woven texture of blankets. An optional complete kit includes the line drawn design on Congress Cloth, needles, and threads.
