Looking for a beautiful rug, carpet or weaving? Walk with the weavers in Teotitlán del Valle!

Visitors find many of the doors open to the family homes/workshops in the Zapotec town of Teotitlán del Valle. Almost every family in this village earns part of their livelihood from weaving. This directory -- created free of charge to the weavers -- showcases family workshops in the village as well as nearby public markets in Oaxaca City and Santa María del Tule. We add links to weavers' websites and the social web including Facebook, Flickr and YouTube.

A Few Words about Responsible Travel Photography - Ask permission before entering a house or taking a photo. If given permission, give the weaver a print copy or email the image. As part of our commitment to Responsible Travel Photography we ask photographers to first ask permission. Want to be responsible and have fun? Upload photos to Flickr. Featured groups include world crafts -- include the name of the artisan -- World Food , Árboles de Oaxaca (Oaxaca Trees), Si Mas Bicicletas (Yes more bicycles) and World Market.
