Camino de los Altos, a Threaded Journey







There is no place in Mexico where the culture of weaving and traditional dressways is more alive than the highlands of Chiapas. Tens of thousands of Mayan weavers in dozens of villages spin, weave, dye, embroider and draw on their deep roots while innovating and dreaming into creation the clothing of a people. This is a journey into that delicious land.


We travel to highland communities and to the homes of weavers to meet, learn and share. What makes this really good trip great is our partnership with the 130 weavers and designers who make up the big-hearted nonprofit organization, El Camino de los Altos . This journey up the highland roads is a journey into the world of this organization and its weavers. In one village household and another we’ll see how Mayan women and French designers have sensitively collaborated over the last thirty years to make beautiful work rooted in skilled Mayan hands and hearts, that shines in Paris.

Join us in this old realm with rare and meaningful access to traditional weavers, hear stories about struggles and achievements, and see truly beautiful work.
