For the greatest selection and variety, we always suggest a short walk to the House of the Eleven Patios, where you can actually watch the artisans weaving their wares on pedal looms, just as their ancestors did. Operators of the looms are always ready, willing, and able – and happy! – to explain and demonstrate the techniques used to create this Patzcuaro signature product.
