Mexican Indigenous weaver, Odilon Merino Morales, is known for his art of weaving on a pre-Hispanic style back strap loom. Born into a small ethnic group called the Amuzgos, Morales lives close to the Costa Chica, in southern Mexico in the state of Oaxaca and into the state of Guerrero. He is the Director of a cooperative of 84 Amuzgos Weavers; some of the natural dyes used and the very special naturally colored brown and green cotton, which are a variety of wild cotton, being used in their textiles. Their work also includes using cotton threads dyed with the incredibly beautiful purple dye from the “Caracol” Snail dye. These are some of the finest indigenous textiles being hand woven anywhere on the planet right now. Morales and the Amuzgos weaving cooperative are responsible for a “renaissance” in the highest quality and beautiful wearable one of a kind articles for adornment.
