Our friend Fortino Ruiz Lopez has just finished this vibrant and amazing rug inspired in Frank Lloyd Wright's Saguaro forms and Cactus Flowers featured on the cover of Liberty Magazine.
Fortino took upon the challenge motivated by his cousins. The process of weaving all this squares and circles is very tedious and requires lots of concentration. We weaves early in the morning and takes a break in the afternoon to play basketball with his friends to relax and use other parts of his body. Fortino loves using bright colors and taking up challenging weaving projects.
