Oaxaca Artisan

This is one of two posts I have prepared featuring this artisan. This lady is one of the most respected weavers in all of Oaxaca, Mexico. When you purchase one of her pieces, she made it all. She raises the animals from which the wool is spun, she makes the dyes from natural plants found in the region and she does the weaving. My wife is a weaver, or used to be, and she feels that the lady does gorgeous work.

In industrial economics that is called "vertical integration."  She has it figured out!
