Who & Where?
Zapotec Indians have been weaving their rugs in a small village outside of Oaxaca City, Mexico for hundreds of years. Zapotec’s have strong family ties and many members of one family will weave together. They start weaving at a young age, being taught by parents and grandparents. “Zapotec weavers express their sense of well being and belonging in what they weave, and the tapestries and rugs that are currently produced reconcile ancient history with the ways of the twenty-first century marketplace” (1)

Navajo-Churro is a rare, ancient breed of sheep introduced to the New World by the Spanish explorer Christopher Columbus on his second voyage. The yarn produced from the wool of this sheep is extremely durable and long lasting with a beautiful sheen. Churro is a natural choice for rugs because of its strength. It is this wool that was used for the prized hand spun Zapotec, Navajo and Rio Grande blankets of the 19th century.
