  • This cooperative has the finer ceremonial pieces that are rare. Of course you will pay, but if you appreciate fine embroidery you will know that these textiles are special. The women who run this...

  • An incredible surprise. We just showed up and were given an introduction to the nearly every step in the production process. All the fabric is organic and the woman, Sorora, was so sweet and generous.
  • I chanced upon this co-op by taking a chance on a sign directing me down a little path between the houses. I was greeted by lovely women, a great shop full of fabulous textiles and a small museum with some gorgeous vintage pieces. You can also learn about the natural dying process. I took a private 2 day (8 hour) backstrap loom class with Cecilia who patiently showed me how to weave and guided me through to the completion of my first piece - all in the cooperatives peaceful garden at the front of the shop. If you really want to appreciate the work that goes into this art form I truly recommend taking a class here!
