Please note: For sustainability and environmental health concerns, I am committed to featuring weavers who work only in natural dyes. To authenticate this, I relied my own extensive research and on the expert advice of Lic. Eric Chavez Santiago, former education director at the Oaxaca Textile Museum, and director, Andares del Arte Popular folk art gallery, an entrepreneurial venture of the Alfredo Harp Helu Family.
There are 2,000 looms in Teotitlan del Valle. It is estimated that perhaps as few as 10 percent use natural dyes, while almost everyone knows how to give a cochineal dye demonstration.
The map highlights favorite off-the beaten path stops in the village. Here’s what’s included:
- Weavers who work only in natural dyes
- Where to sleep and eat
- The village church, museum and rug market
You will receive via email a PDF of the Map and a KEY to all the locations.
