The Zapoteca Indians from the Oaxaca Valley in southern Mexico are truly master craftsmen in the Art of Weaving.  A tradition passed along since Pre-Columbian times, hand weaving continues today as a reminder of the art and culture Mexico's past. Wool is obtained from the shepards of the surronding mountains, it is carefully washed and carded until ready to spin.  Using the old Hand-turnned spinning wheel, the wool is skillfully  hand spun into fine, strong yarn. Then it is hand dyed with colors rendered from local trees, herbs, and cactus fruits. The Cocheneal beetle is taken from the prickly pear cactus, after it is dried it will produce beautiful maroon colors.  In the past weaving was done for clothing and blankets. Today most weavings are made into wallhangings, rugs, tablerunners, hallrunners and bed covers. Although a blend of acrylic yarn and wool is sometimes used for economic reasons, the most highly valued are 100% wool. The value of these extraordinary Zapotec Indian Weavings increases with age.
