Located in Southeastern Mexico, Oaxaca is famous for its colonial buildings, made from green volcanic stone. Indigenous cultures are another source of pride in Oaxaca. Handmade by indigenous artisans from the region, each of these baskets is proof of that. The most widely known indigenous cultures in Oaxaca are the Zapotecs and Mixtecs. They survived colonialism due to the region’s mountainous terrains and isolated areas.
Mixtec weavers are famous for producing high-quality work. They often use palm fronds, which are versatile and durable, gathered locally and prepared according to tradition. Due to their durability, artisans can bend and double palm fronds over without causing them long-term damage. Moreover, artisans can usually reverse any mistakes with a splash of water. As a result of these properties, artisans use palm fronds to produce a wide range of objects. The weaving process is long and complex, with artisans sitting for hours at a time designing and creating each piece.
