On Episode 2, I was thrilled to speak with Omar Chavez Santiago. Omar is a master weaver and natural dyer from Teotitlan Del Valle, in Oaxaca, Mexico. I met Omar last May when I was lucky to get to spend a week learning tapestry weaving from Omar and his parents Fe and Lola in their studio in Teotitlan. I was so inspired by the stunning creativity and the sheer amount of planning and hard work that goes into creating each of their tapestries.
Going to Oaxaca City? Visit their beautiful gallery at 5 de Mayo 408.
