Spotlight: Agustina Tivido

Agustina Tivido is a skilled craftswoman from the mountain town of Hueyapan in Puebla state, México.

Her intricate pieces are all naturally-dyed, woven and embroidered by her in her home studio. The yarn is dyed using materials such as indigo, cochineal, walnuts and moss. After dyeing, the yarn is woven using the traditional backstrap loom. Finally, the pieces are sewn and meticulously embroidered.

A true labour of precision and patience, Agustina is proud to maintain and showcase the traditional textile techniques of her native Hueyapan.

Each garment is paid to Agustina according to the prices she has set for her hard work.
