The Community

This is the workshop in Oaxaca Mexico. We work with a group of local artisans in a small town getting people involved from the community as a way to contribute to their tradition of rug making, which has been declining the past years due to low payments of local gift shops and lack of tourism.

The process

While working on the different series, we stay with the Artisans for several months to have the experience of living there while sharing and learning and to be a part of the process as much as possible. Our inspiration to create is derived from these experiences, while trying to understand what this tradition and culture means to the people, and to us.
