Mexican Artisan

Hormigitas Woven Napkins


Why We Love It
Handwoven by a family of pedal loom weavers in Teotitlán del Valle, Oaxaca using ancestral techniques passed down by generations. These 100% cotton napkins get softer and more absorbent with every wash. Their modern design makes ditching paper towel waste and opting for this sustainable, zero-waste alternative a no-brainer. Woven to heirloom quality, making the perfect housewarming gift. Bonus: each purchase supports indigenous artisans in Mexico and keeps our ancestral traditions alive.

Handwoven • Artisanal Techniques •  Plastic-free • 100% Cotton

These napkins are made by a family-run weaving workshop in central Oaxaca. These mutli-generational artisans use 100% cotton dyed with sustainable, non-toxic colors. This form of weaving employs many members of this small community and artisans working to pass down their techniques to the next generation so that the artistry is not lost.

We partner with these talented artisans to create unique, one-of-a-kind pieces and we compensate them with fair trade prices.

Perfect house warming gift

I bought these for a friend as a house warming gift and she loved them! Getting someone a unique gift where they can tell the story of where the product was made felt like the perfect gift.
