When: 1:30-4:30 pm, Saturday, March 7, 2015
Where: Las Granadas B&B, Avenida 2 de Abril #9, Teotitlan del Valle, Oaxaca
What: think Danza de la Pina — Dance of the Pineapple– at The Guelaguetza to picture what these garments look like
San Felipe Usila is a remote mountain village near Tuxtepec, about an eight-hour drive from Oaxaca. The women weave extraordinary textiles on back strap looms. I was there last October and met a talented family.
Jorge Isidro is coming with his mother, an accomplished weaver, and bringing excellent quality pieces to show our Women’s Creative Writing and Yoga Retreat participants. Because he is making such a long trip, I want to open up the opportunity to you to see and buy the work.
The sales go directly to the weaving families. Prices are reasonable because you are buying direct.
Please invite your friends and share this post to support fine indigenous Oaxaca textile culture. Thank you.
