Sandy in Hueyapan

Sandy is the village matriarch in the small and remote village of Hueyapan, in south-eastern state of Puebla. The first time we pulled in to town, looking to find the source of the beautiful woolen shawl we had previously purchased in Mexico City, the woman we met in the square led us straight to Sandy, with her bustling household of children and grandchildren, and her seemingly never-ending supply of beautiful shawls and ponchos, that are painstakingly dyed with natural pigments, and hand-woven by the women of Hueyapan. Each scarf takes three to six months to make and no two are alike.
