Mexican Tablecloth: Fern Devlin’s Buy A Thread Blog

A message popped into my inbox last week from NYC textile designer Fern Devlin, who had found us on a Google search.  She had a handwoven tablecloth that she thought might be from Oaxaca and asked me about provenance.  I took a close look and saw texture and pattern elements that were familiar to me in the woven cloth work I have seen in Mitla.  But, the real expertise would need to come from Eric Chavez Santiago and the Museo Textil de Oaxaca.  I forwarded Fern’s request to Eric who gave his expert assessment of the piece.  You can read about it on Fern’s blog.
