Mitla Rug - Light Coral Tonal
The mitla is a very important Zapotec design that is prevalent in tapetes (traditional woven rugs) and one of the first symbols young weavers learn to execute in this region of Mexico.
The spirals on this rug represent the circle of life - life and death are always connected.
Most Zapotec symbols are from Zapotec ruins like the ones at Mitla.
Often used as a border treatment, we love the bold look of this design as an all-over print, paired with a sophisticated tonal palette.
