Bautista Weaving

Francisco Bautista is a fourth generation Master Weaver in his family. He and his wife Laura were born in Teotitlán del Valle, a Zapotec village in Oaxaca, Mexico; they have always been fascinated by the infinite possibilities of crossing threads. They use only hand-spun, hand dyed wool, and weave each of their works on a foot pedal loom. The vibrant colors you see in their weavings come from their own natural and aniline dyes. Together they work to ensure that the quality achieved by the Master Weavers of old will continue to live on in each piece they weave.
