The Artisans of Sierra de Guerrero

These products from Sierra de Guerrero have been woven by hands that learned the craft of sustainable weaving on the knees of their mothers and grandmothers. Palm weaving techniques in the region date to before the pre-Hispanic period and have not changed substantially, thanks to the passing of the traditions from one generation to the next.
