With 45 years of experience as an artisan, Señor Rutilio learned to work with looms from his parents. He compares his work to that of a historian; the craft of his hometown Mitla, Oaxaca continues to be told from generation to generation. Like any good story, it traverses the rich cultures of the world, bringing joy to those that embrace his vibrant designs.
Currently, Rutilio has a spacious workshop that employs ten other artisans. Of those ten, one of them is his son, Juan, who continues to learn the story of Mitla.
