A little history on the artists who created our horse bags:
Josefina is one of Manos Zapoteca’s original and most prolific bag designers. She is from a town in South Western Mexico, called Tlacochahuaya, near the town of Teotitlan, where she lives now with her husband Paco and their four children. Instead of growing up weaving as many of our artisans did, she comes from a farming family and didn’t begin to learn the craft until after she was married.
Josefina has been married to Manos Zapotecas' Production Manager Paco for over 20 years. They met when they were both taking the bus into Oaxaca city every day, he to study, and she to work as secretary. They soon fell in love.
Josefina took to weaving very quickly, including dyeing the wool and designing the patterns. She has even become an accomplished seamstress. Now, she finishes bags for other weavers with her industrial sewing machine.
“I forget the world when I begin to dye the colors,” she said. “The colors are never the same and it’s interesting every time.”
