Marco Bautista is from a small town in Oaxaca, Mexico and has been a weaver for most of his life. He and his family’s weavings incorporate both traditional motifs and modern design to produce a variety of finished products including rugs, runners, tapestries, and handbags. He says, “The art of weaving has been passed down through the generations of my family for hundreds of years, and my parents began teaching me to prepare yarn and tie fringes when I was 9 years old. I started weaving around age 10 and was able to enroll in a local university and complete my engineering degree by working as a weaver. Today, I am still learning new, more complicated techniques, as well as how to use other types of looms. I am very passionate about weaving and sharing my culture and heritage with others.”
