Looking for a really easy way to dress up your home or cabin and add a touch of southwest stye? Try Zapotec placemats and native rugs for those areas of the home where you need a little color or texture. Zapotec handwoven wool tapestries and placemats are a suprisingly simple way to take your rustic decor to the next level. 

If you aren't familiar with Zapotec weavings, you've been missing out!  These beautiful hand woven tapestries are made by the famous Zapotec Indians of Oaxaca, Mexico.  Here, they have been weaving their beautiful designs and passing their techiniques on to their children for generations.  

The use of natural dyes made from different elements of nature such as bark, moss, insects and nuts are what give each weaving its vibrant color.  Course yarn made of 100% wool is woven on a hand loom into designs that have become recognized around the world.  The best part is that each tapestry is a unique, handwoven design.

Zapotec placemats can be used in a number of ways and are the perfect size to use on top of dressers, night stands, end tables and more.  The southwest look can also be incorporated into western or lodge decor and look great in rustic log cabins and ranch style homes.
