    Brightened my Day and My Room

    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.
