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.
