One of the many gifted weavers of Teotitlan del Valle, a Zapotec native village in the hills of the Yucatan peninsula, in Mexico. Long before the Spanish conquest, the people of this village were so famous and valuable as weavers, that the marauding Aztecs left them in place to weave, rather than capturing them as slaves. This weaver’s most popular design is an optical illusion of fish, in natural fleece and many different color combinations.
