Chavez Rugs Hang @ Dos Perros Restaurant, Durham, NC

Stephen discovered Dos Perros, the new downtown Durham Mexican restaurant opened by Charlie and Diana Deal, as a by-product of picking up pig slops every Tuesday from Charlie’s original Chapel Hill establishment, Jujube in the Glen Lennox Shopping Center.  Stephen raved.  That’s no small feat, since our taste buds for Mexican food is now more refined as a result of multiple annual visits to Oaxaca.  Dos Perros is over the top for authenticity, creativity, and great taste.

Over dinner one night, Stephen got to talking with Diana about our dear friend, master weaver Federico Chavez and the possibility of hanging rugs in the restaurant for display and sale.  Last Sunday morning, Stephen left early, rugs piled high, headed for Durham.  Diana and Stephen hung the rugs, Stephen atop the 10 foot ladder, while Charlie whipped up breakfast–eggs, tortillas and pork.  If you live in the area, stop by and let us know how you like the display.

Thanks to Diana and Charlie for giving us the venue to showcase these beauties that are all created from 100% wool that is dyed with natural materials.
