    Our baby bonnets are made with the intention to dress the most important people in our lives with the best materials available. The bonnets are cozy and beautiful and the materials are carefully selected taking care of the land and ourselves. Organic cotton is breathable and perfect for the warm weather.
    The hand woven fabrics are made with native brown cotton that has been hand spun to threads and woven on both back strap and pedal loom (rhomb weave). Dyed threads have natural dyes. The native cotton originates from the state of Oaxaca and Guerrero. Hand spun yarn gives the beautiful rustic feeling in the fabric.

    ECOLOGICAL COTTON:

     

    The cotton used is native to the Costa Chica of Oaxaca and Guerrero. It is heritage white and coyuchi cotton (brown color) from 35 small producers from 12 coastal communities of Oaxaca. The farmers participate in a program for ecological production and the increase of biodiversity in their plots.

     

    NATURAL DYES:

     

     

    GRAY

    The gray color is obtained from the acacia trees pods (huizache).

     

     

        BROWN

    The brown color comes from the oak bark. The bark is collected in the forests of the Sierra Sur. It is very similar to the color of the naturally colored cotton we use called coyuche.

     

     

     

     

    WINE

    The burgundy color is obtained from cochineal produced in the Oaxaca Valley (Zimatalán). These are mixed with coyuche cotton. Please note: the wine colors leak more in the wash than blue or brown colors. 

     

     

    BLUE

    Indigo Indigofera Suffruticosa- is a native plant to Mexico. Our indigo dye comes from the Istmo region of Oaxaca and is produced by a family that still preserves the knowledge of the alchemy how to create the plant dye.

  • More about the textiles: 

     

    We purchase the textiles from a project that has the idea to participate in a meaningful, culturally appropriate, sustainable artisanal production that supports rural life through cottage industry.

     

    VISION

    To be a significant and reliable force for the generation of well-being, prosperity and independence within the life of the people of San Sebastián Rio Hondo, Oaxaca.

     

    THREAD

    At present, there are 200 women from the villages and ranches of San Sebastián Rio Hondo who remove with their hands the seeds of cotton brought from the coast, card and spin it, all by hand using spinning wheels in their homes.

     

    Local carpenters reproduce the wheel designed by Gandhi so that each artisan has her own.

     

    There are two types of handicraft fabric applied in the village: Pedal loom and waist loom.
