Traditional Weaving Exhibition

Mexfestival is always a big supporter of art and dance. Keeping the spirit alive we are opening a photo contest as part of the Exhibition in Mexfestival 2018 called "Traditional Weaving" in Auckland, New Zealand. This Exhibition will focus on the state of Chiapas and specially its artisans. We want others to understand the hard work required to complete a "huipil", a "rebozo", an artisan bag or any other art product that they create consuming many hours of work.
