Wool animals are made Mexico by Tzotzil women. Colorful and joyful the hand crafted animals that express the soul of their makers have quickly become a favorite among Mexican folk art lovers.
Despite this extreme poverty this area is rich in indigenous culture, natural beauty and traditional crafts. Each item is unique and made with natural, hand-spun wool shorn from local, sustainably raised sheep. The production of these toys utilizes leftover scraps of wool fabric, creating a small but unique source of income for several families in the region.
