Welcome to Peyote People, my name is Kevin and together with my wife Beatriz we run a small gallery in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico that works directly with the mexican families. Over the last 10years we have developed very close relationships with a number of families.
The Montaño Santiago family from Teotitlán del Valle, Oaxaca, Who have worked and mastered the techniques of weaving for 5 Generations, nowadays working together Edmundo, Pedro and Diego Montaño. Zapotec master craftsmen of the fabric on pedal loom, preserving the ancient techniques of weaving, dyeing and design
For the perfectionist skill of his work he has been recognized internationally, having exhibitions of Mexican folk art.
Wool Rugs elaborated with sheep wool and natural fibers, he has developed the pre-Hispanic techniques for the elaboration of art, mainly in the dyeing of wool with natural dyes, such as plants, roots, mosses, barks and husks of fruits and trees and mainly indigo paste (indigo ) and the cochineal grana.
At age 12 he began to weave slightly larger pieces with a greater degree of difficulty, they were no longer just valances, nor working with traditional technique, but now he wove geometric figures of all kinds, mainly diamonds, Zapotec frets and ornaments that can be seen in the ruins of Mitla.
