"What to Buy if You Really Want to Empower Women"
Mexican Weavers Embrace Natural Dyes

In Teotitlan del Valle, a small village in Oaxaca outside Oaxaca de Juarez, many weavers are reinvigorating the tradition of using plants and insects to dye textiles. It is a tradition that stretches back more than 1,000 years into their Zapotec heritage. 

If you follow us on Instagram you might have seen a photo or two from our visit to the studio of Porfirio Gutierrez. Porfirio and his family are leaders in the art of natural dying, as is Josefina Jimenez, who dyed the wool for our Josefina Tote. Porfirio and his family were featured in the New York Times - click through to read and see more.
