The fam and I have spent the last week in Chiapas, Mexico. UN-BE-LIEV-ABLE! Fantastic! Stupendous! Incredible! You get the picture, right??
The San Cristobal area is world renown for the textiles that are woven by local indigenous groups. The women weavers are truly talented and produce amazing embroidered and hand-loomed fabrics, as well as unusual pieces of pottery.
The markets in San Cristobal overflow with these beautiful pieces, but for the real deal -- one must travel to the nearby villages where the women, often working in cooperatives, ply their trade.
