The López López Family
The López López family comes from a community called Betania and belongs to the Tzotzil group, one of the eleven indigenous peoples who live in the state of Chiapas (South of Mexico). They proudly preserve their traditional clothing, language and community traditions.
This large family spends half of the year in Chiapas and the other half in Nayarit. During their stay in Chiapas, they raise sheep, process wool, and turn it into cloth – a long and complex artisanal process. Once they have woven the woolen thread on a backstrap loom, they work as a family to create beautiful toys with animal shapes that they later sell in Bucerías and all the markets of the Banderas Bay during the high season.
Creative wool toys with animal figures, made 100% by hand.
