JACOBO MENDOZA RUIZ (Teotitlán del Valle)

Jacobo, a master weaver featured in the exhibition FOFA sponsored following its 2008 young artists’ competition, is known for the fine quality of his work. He finishes the tassels of his rug in a very original and elaborate way that contrasts with the geometric figures that define “Diamond Scale.”  He notes that this work is executed in equal parts. In creating it, he mastered a geometric unity that reflects the harmony and tranquility of life in his pueblo. The idea of producing this rug was inspired by Jacobo’s experience working with artisans outside Mexico who taught him new techniques for perfecting his weaving, which is his passion.
