Zapotec Wool Place Mats


Using all natural dyes, the Zapotec weaving process is an ancient art - each family has it's own distinct patterns.  Like the Mayans and Aztecs, the Zapotec empire built great cities - they were known as the Cloud People.

Traditionally a female art, men are now also helping to keep this ancient traditional weaving alive by replicating ancient patterns all by hand.  A laborious process, but one that results in unique woven pieces of art.
