Natural dyeing

By José Buenaventura González

Jose Buenaventura Gonzales is a Zapotec weaver from Teotitlan del Valle, Oaxaca. As a child he learned the processes of wool: washing, carding, spinning and dying with vegetal products, as well as the warp of the material and the weaving of geometric or circular designs. He cultivates his own cochineal to use, applying the ancient technique of dying, producing diverse dyes and tones using plants such as the pomegranate, black zapote and walnut, among others. Jose actively works to promote and spread the traditional culture of the Zapotecas. He has given various workshops of cultivation and dying with the cochineal beetle and various plants throughout the country and in the United States, always emphasizing the importance of an environmental culture and using organic materials and vegetable dyes.
