"I was born to weave, academia was definitely not for me! I remember skipping school with my friends to swim in the dams and pick guavas."
Update (August, 2019) ?I like what I do, and I am inspired by my surroundings and the culture of my state. One of the challenges I face is to become independent, have my own designs, colors, etc. And that my art reaches people from other places; that this work is recognized and that it is not lost. ?Now I really enjoy being with my children, playing with them. I like to plant fruit trees and take care of them; and when there is more time?to read and devote more time to the passions that give me life and allow me to grow. ?I feel very grateful for and excited about NOVICA customers for acquiring original crafts from Mexican artisans. Each piece is made with love and time. I will continue working to create designs and colors full of joy and the human touch. ?I feel happy with NOVICA for giving me a place to display my rugs and make it known to the whole world. Thank you!? Original Artisan Story "I am the youngest son in a family of weavers from Teotitlan del Valle, and I learned from my parents and brothers how to weave. I would watch them prepare the yarn, how they dyed them with natural colors, and thread them on the loom. I feel very proud to preserve this art, which my parents learned from my grandparents. My father and brothers are NOVICA featured artists too. "I began weaving my own Zapotec wool rugs when I finished middle school and since then I've been in different exhibitions and art fairs in Oaxaca and throughout the country. The recognition and congratulations I have received from clients and friends has been amazing! "What I enjoy most about weaving is the creative aspect: from designing a rug to weaving it. I wove my first rug when I was 13 years old and I remember my father being so pleased with it that he didn't hesitate in taking it with him to sell. In 1966 I started my own workshop, and my wool products have traveled beyond Mexico's frontiers. I combine natural elements, like flowers, plants, seeds and tree bark when I prepare the dyes I'll use for a specific design. I use lime and salt to fix the colors. I recycle the remaining water so I get different shades of a particular color. "I describe my work as unique and admirable ? I love what I do! The culture and natural Environment of Oaxaca inspire me. But it was a great challenge to break away and start on my own, trying to be an independent weaver with my own designs, colors, etc. "I was born to weave; academia was definitely not for me! I remember skipping school with my friends to swim in the dams and pick guavas. Nowadays I love playing with my children and together we are planting trees. If I have the time, I do like to read. "My thanks go to NOVICA customers for your interest in our hand-woven items. I will never stop creating new designs and color combinations, which I hope you'll like. I am happy to be able to count on NOVICA to exhibit my rugs to the whole world."
