Jacobo Vásquez

I´m Jacobo Vásquez, I´m 48 years old, my dad taught me to weave in the loom when I was 8 years old, I still remember my first rug which was about “Zapotec gods”. Soon after my dad realized that I didn’t put attention at school so he got really mad and bought me some sheep to raise, it worked so he bought me another 3 sheep and when I graduated from school at my 12 years old I had 10 sheep which abound more and more. In the mornings I wove and at midday I used to go to herding my 200 ship at our mountains, my family used their wool to weave and I used to sheared and spined It.

I got married and with the time I started to travel to many markets throughout Mexico to sell our work. At present I dedicate to weave rugs with zapotec Iconography, I love to go to the mountains to collect the plants to dye since that is how I connect with nature, I happily hope to leave the mark of my soul In each rug.
