Travels to Pantelhó, Chiapas

Coming soon – a full trip report on our visit to the textile artisans of Pantelhó. A village at the end of a very long windy, sometimes treacherous, road. Looking forward to sharing the beautiful pictures of the artisans and their works and, of course, tales of our trip with our community.
