Materials and methods: criollo sheep wool hand dyed with xiuhquilitl (indigo). Handwoven on a Zapotec style loom of the 16th century adapted from European styles. Woven using a 7 threads per inch reed.
Patterns and symbols: we played around with some ideas around the rainy season wich brings us joy, hence the smile symbol along with lightning and thunder pattern that announces the rains and Gaalnazak (abundance and joy) that comes with it.
