Weavers


Irvin and Lisa Trujillo

Our business represents Chimayo weavers of great talent and skill. Our weavings are personal expression of ourselves, even while they are expressions of our traditions and techniques. Our contract weavers and consignment artists work with us regularly, and live near enough to our shop in Chimayo to make that possible. Most of these pieces are woven in the weavers' homes, on their own home-made looms. You'll see that everybody has their own approach to color, design, and tradition. Some weavers have a variety of different sized looms and work at different widths, while others only work on one size of weaving. Some weavers try out different parts of the tradition and others stay focused on one or two styles. Some of the weavers represented produce or procure their own yarns, while others are supplied with yarns from the shop. Each weaver brings their own skills and talents to bear. Some of these folks come from families with many generations of weavers. Some people learned to weave as children, others learned later in life. Most importantly though, each weaver brings their own aesthetic to the process, and their own life history. And they sign their pieces with these marks.
