The Zapotec (Binia’a) civilization was one of the highest developed cultures of Mesoamerica during the pre-Columbian period. A culture still predominant today across the state of Oaxaca in the southwest of Mexico.
These beautiful natural wool plaids are created by a Zapotec master artisan and his wife. The wool is dyed using natural pigments which they make from native insects and plants.
The yarns are prepared and woven by the men on ancient wooden pedal looms and the ends are delicately hand finished by the women.
