Mexican artisan Delfina Ruiz creates this lightweight Zapotec cotton rebozo. Handwoven with naturally dyed snow white and black cotton in an intricate pattern of stripes of nested diamonds, the generous shawl is finished with long hand-knotted fringe.
In the Andes, the Land of the Four Corners, mountains are sacred. So is culture. The Nazca lines, the Wari glyphs, the Quipu knots and the complex multi-colored textiles of the Incas are all recorded and live on the work of contemporary Peruvian artisans.
