Warm orange welcomes beige, blue, green, yellow and a touch of pink in a bedspread by Oaxacan weaver Carmen Ruiz. She starts by dyeing the cotton yarn with natural pigments before weaving the bedspread on a telar de chicote (whip loom), just like her parents taught her. This type of loom was introduced to Zapotec communities by the Spanish.
