Story Behind the Art:
This is the art my parents dedicated their lives to, and it's what I know best. I'm from Oaxaca where I grew up with my parents, who have been artisans for as long as I can remember. They weave Zapotec rugs and taught me to weave. I perfected the techniques through practice. When I was 18, I created my first piece. It was a rug sample, but I didn't start producing them myself until I had a family of my own. This is the art my parents dedicated their lives to, and it's what I know best. I've been crafting carpets now since 2004.I enjoy playing with my children, which is my principal occupation. They are my inspiration; they are the source of my ideas and the reason I want to continue doing what I enjoy so much. Thank you for the opportunity to be here with you in Novica.
