Jacobo Mendoza

While vacationing in Oaxaca City last December of 2019, we visited the workshop of Jacobo Mendoza, a master weaver in Teotitlan del Valle. We were very impressed both by the quality of his work and his dedication to traditional dyes and weaving techniques.  The tapestries and rugs we saw in Jacobo’s workshop were superb pieces with bright colors and traditional designs.

After returning home to Houston, we contacted Jacobo and placed an order for a rug with the exact measurements for our breakfast room.  Jacobo worked out the details with us and used one of the wider looms in his workshop to weave our rug to our exact specifications: 8 feet 2 inches wide by 10 feet 2 inches long.

Testimonials: What Customers Say About Jacobo Mendoz's Rugs

The rug was ready in two and a half months. Everything was done as promised and Jacobo was always prompt in responding to our questions via email.  The rug was shipped it via FedEx and arrived in Houston in three days.


Jacobo did an outstanding job. Our rug is made from soft Alpaca wool dyed with natural pigments (Jacobo demonstrated the dyeing process when we visited his workshop!). We love the colors, the smooth feel of the wool and the traditional Zapotec design. The overall quality of the rug is exceptional, a true piece of art. Needless to say, we highly recommend Jacobo for his craftsmanship and professionalism.
