Flor de Xochistlahuaca

La Flor de Xochistlahuaca is a weaving cooperative of 25 indigenous women founded in 1969 by Florentina Lopez de Jesus,in Xochistlahuaca in Guerrero in southern Mexico. Using traditional back-strap looms, these women weave beautiful brocade designs using spindle-spun natural white, brown and green cotton yarns.  Handweaving and spindle spinning in Xochistlahuaca pre-dates Hispanic times. Amuzgo girls begin to learn the weaving process with simple tasks such as cleaning and carding cotton. Later, they learn weaving from their mothers, aunts and grandmothers.
