Our Approach - El Tono de la Cochinilla

Our Approach

Our art is not only a beautiful tradition of family bonding but also a source of employment; weaving leads to job opportunities for less privileged people in the village and neighboring villages, and an income for full time and part time students. Our art also keeps the weaving tradition alive, weaving is such a great tradition in our family that it is not only a means of self-expression but also something sacred to our heritage, and as heirs of this tradition we take pride in our culture and heritage.

Our Story

To us weaving is a very important tradition, that's why from the age of 7 we teach our children how to weave, just like our parents and grandparents taught us when we were children, and how our children will teach their children, and carry on this tradition for future generations.Weaving is not only an art but also a bonding process between family members. Simple tasks like washing the wool are learned first, and then advance to actually weaving on the foot looms, with progressively more complex designs, util they have mastered all areas of the rug making process and will be able to pass it on to their children.
