Embroidery

The textiles of Oaxaca are world-renowned for their use of vibrant colors and intricate motifs. In this tour, we visit workshops specializing in hand-sewn embroidery.

Much of the embroidery produced in Oaxaca is still made using the traditional backstrap loom of ancient Mesoamerica. Through hundreds of years, craftspeople across generations have perfected the use of these tools to create dynamic patterns.

Today in the city of Oaxaca you can see examples of this embroidery everywhere, from clothing for both men and women to home goods.

Join us as we travel to San Antonino Castillo Velasco to see an impressive workshop dedicated to the fine art of Oaxacan embroidery.
