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.
