We are a family of Zapotec textile artists practicing an art form as our ancestors have done for over 2500 years. Today we are on the verge of losing this ancient art forever due to changes in technology, the economy, and relative isolation.
It is our mission to preserve our traditional art form through educating, demonstrating and reaching out to the world beyond Teotitlán del Valle. We invite you to learn through us and come to appreciate a beautiful, sustainable, and historically significant art form that is very much worth preserving.
Through our teachings we hope to bring awareness of traditional wisdom and values, and confront the detachment that exists between the object and the culture that nurtures its creation. Learn more about our residencies and workshops.
