Marcia Lucas, owner of El Interior, has officially departed for her annual buying trip down to Oaxaca, Mexico. She’s slated to arrive back in Austin sometime in early March, but in the meantime, we’ve received a handful of pictures and videos that we wanted to share. This is the first piece of a two part series (next up, she’ll be embarking on a group tour), so stay tuned for even more exciting updates out of Oaxaca!
Sra. Patrícia is one of a cooperative of 24 families of weavers that have been working together since 1960 in the village of Sto Tomas Jalieza. The cooperative is run by officers elected yearly, a President, Secretary, Treasurer and three “Vocales”, women whose job it is to make sure their work space which is also their Market, is swept and clean and that there are always some of them weaving on their looms as a demonstration of the craft. We have table runners and belts from this Cooperative of Weavers.
