While it may be true that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” all who view it can appreciate skill and artistic talent. This is especially true when it comes to home decorating ideas. And, one of the most versatile of all home- decorating ideas may very well be Mexican Rugs. To the discriminating birder who is looking for a viable home decorating website, Wings on Things may be the proverbial answer to prayer!

Perhaps the real “draw” to Mexican Rugs is their versatility. Whether you use them as a throw rug, as a tapestry, or to drape over a couch or chair they will always be an eye-catcher and be sure to be appreciated by all who view them!

There are two other significant aspects of our Mexican Rugs. The first is the fact that you never have to wonder if they really are, in fact, Mexican. We at Wings on Things have contracted with local artisans in the Oaxaca Region of Mexico to produce high-quality, attractive Mexican Rugs that feature decorative birds.

The other important issue is the fact that in purchasing them our clients are helping the artisans from one of the more economically deprived areas of North America. By employing “fair trade practices” with those we deal with, we are helping to make a difference in the lives of those artisans who live in the Oaxacan Region.

The key, of course, is that discriminating birders are looking for immensely beautiful items that they can display in their homes, much like this Mexican Rug that we refer to simply as “chick heads.” A navy blue panel measuring 55” X 31” with braided string tassels, it is adorned with two distinctively different colored “chick heads.” The first set is yellow with black eyes and an orange bill, while the other set is brown with black eyes and tan bills. Orange “half spheres” separate the different colored heads.
