2 Mile Surf Shop

Posted on: September 2nd, 2011 by Joe No Comments

The small, unincorporated coastal berg of Bolinas, CA can be hard to locate, as residents are infamous for tearing down road signs that would help visitors find it. But for those who live there, and those who know how to navigate the winding backroads of Marin County, it has become a Bay Area surfer haven. And one of the focal points of the tight-knit surf community is the 2 Mile Surf Shop. Owned by Drew Reinstein, the shop employs several surf instructors lead by Lessons Manager Nick Kreiger, and an in-house surfboard maker, John Moore. Its name refers to that troublesome sign: legend holds that the very first one to be torn down read “Bolinas, 2 Miles.” Read more here.

Teotitlán del Valle-Rug Weavers

Posted on: September 1st, 2011 by Joe No Comments

While traveling in Oaxacan town of Teotitlán del Valle I befriended Francisco ‘Paco’ González and his mother, a family of weavers. Over several visits to their home they showed me the art of crushing dye for color in the rugs, the making of yarn from raw wool.

This community of Teotitlán del Valle is known for its woven wool rugs which use natural dyes such as those obtained by the cochineal insect. The making of the rugs begins the washing of the raw wool to rid it of dirt and residues. Next it is carded then spun into yarn. The yarn is wound into large balls to prepare for dying with natural dyes such as those obtained from the needle bush, indigo, cochineal, , Mexican marigold and others.
