Wander through marketplaces of remote villages in Chiapas, dance with pineapple-laden girls in Oaxaca City, and parade with locals through the streets of Uruapan in the Palm Sunday Fair—all in search of traditional textiles. Textiles Fiestas of Mexico is at once a celebration of Mexican folk life and a practical guide to finding the best collector textiles in the country.

The guide is divided into two sections: Festivals and Fairs and Markets. Festival and Fairs guides you from the deeply traditional Coffee and Huipil Fair in Cuetzalan, to the Reed Basket Fair in the tiny village of San Juan Guelavía. In the Markets section, travel to several weekly markets in Oaxaca; to Chiapas where the abundant textile cooperatives in San Cristóbal give way to the flower fields of Zinacantán and the fabric they inspire.

Textile Fiestas of Mexico offers smart advice on where to go and how to get there, focusing on safety and comfort for visitors who don’t want the stresses and schedules of traditional tour groups. Brautigam shares insider tips from her extensive travels in Mexico and her expert textile knowledge, including a guide for ethical shopping. Her vibrant photographs illustrate the adventure and will inspire you to travel along.

Sheri Brautigam owned a textile design studio in San Francisco for twenty years. She has worked as an English Language Fellow for the U.S. Embassy in Mexico, and as a serious collector and purveyor of fine indigenous textiles from Mexico and Guatemala. She sells collector-quality textiles through her online shop, www.etsy.com/shop/livingtextiles and writes a blog, livingtextilesofmexico/wordpress.com.

Norma Schafer, Oaxaca Cultural Navigator LLC, contributed two chapters about the ikat weavers of Tenancingo de Degollado and the Teotitlan del Valle, Oaxaca, rug weavers who work in natural dyes.

The book arrived with the speed of light! I love that! And now I'm going to read it cover to cover before my flight to Mexico, in less than 3 weeks. Lot's of beautiful photographs and great information. You rock Sheri! Thanks so much!

I can't recall how I first heard about Sheri's book. Maybe it was when I was researching for a trip to Mexico, that I happen to stumble upon it. I took a Kindle version of it with me to Oaxaca a couple of years ago, but had always wished I had the actual book version. Not only does Sheri tell you what you need to know about «Textile Fiestas of Mexico», she literally opens up a whole new world to you, one you may not have even known existed. And that's a real gift! You get to see everything come to life through the author's eyes and point of view, and there is some precious advice. Sheri: thank for documenting and sharing this world with your readers!

The earrings are fabulous and the book will be so helpful on my future trips! I also discovered where an item that I inherited from my grandmother came from, using the pictures of the markets in this book! :-)
