Teotitlán Workshop Visit

Yesterday we visited the workshop of one of our natural pigment instructors in Teotitlán, Oaxaca. Teotitlán is a sleepy little village about 20 minutes out of Oaxaca central. It is well-known for its textiles, in particular, rugs which are woven on hand-operated looms, from wool that is mainly dyed with natural pigments like cochinilla and añil (above left).
