Weaving Cooperative

Traditionally women stayed at home and cooked for the family but a number of women started cooperatives in the Teotihuacan Valley. In some cases this was because the men had left to try to find a better life in the US leaving the women behind. In this video the cooperative of women is within a single family – a mother with her 5 daughters (no men have left in this particular case – the mother is happily married as is one of her daughters).

The video is at: WEAVING COOPERATIVE.
