Weavers of Nachig

About thirty minutes outside of the bustling city of San Cristobal de las Casas, you’ll find the quiet village of Nachig. It’s here, in this unassuming town, you’ll find Reyna, and her family, the so called weaving family.
One main road crosses this community, with small houses, small vegetable markets and a beautiful church where locals can homage their Santa Fatima. This small town, between the Chiapas Highland mountains is a colored village full of natives wearing their traditional flowered costumes. As we go to visit Reyna, what is quiet often, we enter a huge family house near to a local rural school. We are greeted by light-filled rooms, bright turquoise floors, and wonderful atole, warm drink made with home grown corn. Reyna walked us through the workshop, explaining how every room have a different purpose: one room for embroidering, one for weaving, one for final construction. They have the system down pat.
But don’t let this well-oiled machine fool you – they still know how to have some fun. In fact, on any given day, you’ll catch these weavers jamming out to Ariana Grande or Jessie J as they masterfully craft their incredible designs.
