manta; classic Mexican textiles

| Private Reply
Hello, I hope someone can help with this query.

We are looking for old style Mexican textiles. The last place I bought any of this classic manta was in Uruapan at the Fabrica San Pedro which seems to have become a salon de fiesta these days. It appears that the Fabrica is no longer in the business of making these beautiful textiles.

The website for the Artesanias museum in Morelia mentions a textile business in Patzcuaro. Has anyone been there?

We will be grateful for any information!

Only half of the old mill site has been turned into a convention center.

The other half of Fábrica San Pedro is home to Telares Uruapan S.A. (TUSA), and they still produce traditional hand-woven, hand-dyed, natural-fiber textiles. Click this link to see their product offerings:

There is a fabric store in Tlaquepaque called Monas which has the types of things shown in the link above.
