At an early age I learned the craft of palm weaving; It all started with wanting to help my mother and continue with the customs of my town San Luis amatlan, miahuatlan, Oaxaca, where with the help of my great-grandmother and my mother Inés García she taught me the fabulous activity of weaving palm handicrafts where she does not forget On the contrary, it inspires us to do it more easily by weaving hats, blowers, bags, among a range of crafts that we make with palm.

The weavers obtain the palm, through merchants who go to the town to offer it and which they call palm vallista.

The palm is then dyed with natural dyes, if color is required; the leaves are then woven together to give them the desired shape.
