Eric and I visited this woman and her husband while on a looping three-day tour up the Pacific Coast of Oaxaca. Eric was scouting possible tour destinations and fiber arts export possibilities - I was tagging along a bit dazed by the cultural space/time warp but managing to hold on to my camera. We visited here for several hours, while the light in this woman's workplace kept getting better and better. She is weaving a panel for, and wearing, a huipil.
