In the bustling markets of Oaxaca de Juarez during Dia de Muertos, we encountered Irma, an artisan whose work with textiles and alebrijes caught our attention. Following a conversation about her craft, Irma invited us to her home studio. This visit offered us a closer look at the process behind creating traditional Oaxacan art, showcasing the skill and cultural heritage of Irma's family.

About Irma Santos de Martinez

Irma's Weaving Studio highlights traditional weaving skills passed down within Irma's family. Starting at age 7, Irma learned weaving from her sister. Her craft led her to Japan for a showcase and now, back in Mexico, she and her family, including her children and daughters-in-law, create and sell woven textiles like tablecloths and bags from their Oaxaca workshop. Irma's work reflects decades of dedication to preserving her family's weaving tradition.

– Con amor, Irma

"Muy bonito y bendito es mi trabajo, el cual disfruto profundamente porque nos permite subsistir y exhibir nuestro talento. A los turistas también les encanta. En cada pieza, invierto mi máximo esfuerzo y cariño, sin olvidar los momentos tristes y difíciles. Pero lo más importante es que lo realizo con todo mi corazón y mucho amor."
