Artisan Community

This technique of embroidery is native to the Tzotzil community in Zinacantan, Chiapas.  The community is known for this intricate embroidery and weaving.  The fabric is woven on a backstrap loom, and then subsequently accented with designs.  The designs, which generally reflect the flora and fauna of Chiapas, are hand-drawn and then hand-embroidered.
The tradition of embroidery is a large part of the culture in Zinacantan, as most women learn to embroider by the age of 10.
