Twenty years ago, in Fe y Lola we took a risk, and decided to focus instead on producing high quality wool rugs on small scale. We invested in a sustainable weaving process that does not include toxic chemicals, such as sulfuric acids and anilines, that are very dangerous for one’s health as well as for the environment. By conducting research on natural dyes, experimenting with local natural dye materials and, most importantly, rediscovering and re-learning ancient Zapotec natural dyeing techniques, we began to develop an exclusive palette of natural colors and combinations. Along the way we have had the opportunity to learn from other natural dyers and weavers from all over the world and share our knowledge with them, enriching our commitment towards our work and our customers. Our Fe y Lola’s creative workshop is based in Teotitlán del Valle on Francisco I Madero 55. A visit to our workshop allows customers and textile enthusiasts to glimpse our weaving and natural dye processes in situ and in action, allowing full immersion in the Zapotec textile-making experience.
