Rugs of the Week - by Delorcita Francis

by John Aldrich

We featured Delorcita Francis last month with two of her Teec Nos Pos rugs for which she is well-known. We recently added two more rugs from Delorcita which demonstrate her ability to weave beautiful rugs in a variety of styles.

This Yei rug includes sacred corn plants and a wonderful use of color. The catalog listing is 7107. The rug measures 38" x 28" and is priced at $750.

The other new rug from Delorcita is a finely woven storm pattern rug.

This is a classic storm design embellished with intriguing geometric patterns. The rug measures 30" x 44" and sells for $900. The cost reflects the quality of the weaving, the intricate design, and the relatively large size. See catalog listing 7106 for more details.

See this 2010 post for more information about the rug catalog.

Notes: Every effort has been made to photograph and present the rugs with as accurate rendition of color as possible. It's not possible, however, to be certain that your computer won't show some variance. Where two prices are listed in the catalog, the higher represents what the weaver hopes to receive and the lower, the minimum she will accept. As has always been the case at ANE all the proceeds of every rug sale go entirely to the weaver. Prices are set by the weaver, and since there is no "middleman" they are typically very reasonable.
