Oaxaca

Mexico

a rich textile history

Thirty minutes outside of Oaxaca City is the small town of Teotitlán de Valle, where weaving dates back to 500 BC. A tradition passed down from generation to generation, weaving is a way of life here. Caroline traveled to Oaxaca to learn their techniques and fell in love with Mexico and its traditions. Pedro, Caroline's head artisan and friend is a third generation weaver and specializes in natural dying.
