We design and operate textile art and cultural journeys to Mexico, parts of Colombia, and Panama. Our tours focus on natural dyeing and ikat dye resist, and the weaving techniques woven on backstrap and pedal looms, such as brocade, gauze, and tapestry. We explore textiles and dress as ethnographic expression that forms an essential part of the cultural landscape of the country. Our tours explore the coast and isthmus of Oaxaca, La Chinantla, Oaxaca, the Sierra Norte and Valley of Tehuacan, Puebla, and the Maya highlands of Chiapas. We also offer a unique program on the Mexican Rebozo: Ikat Techniques and Traditions.
