SFS is excited to announce the addition of a new item to shop.slowfiberstudios.com. A map of the traditional clothing of Oaxaca titled: Hilos del país de las nubes / Threads of the Land of Clouds, is now available to purchase!
This map was created from the research of Alejandro de Avila, who will be presenting at this year’s 9ISS, and director of the Ethnobotanical Garden of Oaxaca, as well as the curator of the Museo Textil de Oaxaca. The map visualizes the diverse production and creation of different types of clothing in Oaxaca, organized according to 8 different regions. The printing of this wonderful resource was sponsored by the Museo Textil de Oaxaca(Textile Museum of Oaxaca).
