Contributed by Tamie

Bright and beautiful handwoven wool rugs just arrived from Oaxaca, Mexico at Traditions! My daughters, Chaela and Zannah, just returned from a working with a weaving cooperative in the village of Santa Ana. They brought back some of the rugs, many which use natural dyes, and all are handmade from their sheep. Check out the audio-photo slideshow at they put together about how they make the rugs, and come by Traditions to see the rugs!
