Zapotec Woven Art
Hand Woven 100% Sheep Wool
2' x 3'
From the Artist: "My name is Marcos Bautista, and I have been a weaver for as long as I can remember. Originally from Teotitlan Del Valle, Oaxaca, Mexico, weaving rugs and tapestries from sheeps' wool is an art that has been passed down through the generations of my family for hundreds of years. The pieces I weave are inspired by ancient Zapotec traditional designs, images from nature and modern lifestyles. This item is made of 100% sheeps wool, hand dyed and hand woven on foot pedal looms by me or my family. When you buy this item, you are buying directly from the source. Your purchase helps by allowing my family, friends, and I to support ourselves by creating the art that we love, and to be able to invest in the future of our community and preserve our culture and traditions for generations to come. Thank you for your support!"
