• Meet Jesus Vásquez from the famous weaving village of Teotitlán del Valle. His family has been weaving beautiful woolen rugs for so long that nobody remembers when they started. Here, Jesus is teaching us how to card the wool, getting out the gnarliest knots with the help of two square paddles that you’re supposed to rub together to align the fibers.
