Weavers of Oaxaca
When we visited these women, they couldn’t wait to show us their handiwork – their faces beamed with pride as they told us about the different stories and symbols found throughout their weavings. Their personal favorite is the butterfly pattern – a symbol of beauty and liberty, everything that this cooperative stands for. To them, these weavings aren’t merely objects to fill a home - they are artifacts of their own personalities and their Zapotec roots.
