Palma Green White - David Pompa

Underneath the earth in the desert between Oaxaca and Puebla, a unique texture is being created. Palma moves at a speed almost undetectable for the human eye. The craft
creates a sonata, a playing duet between the material and wind.  The sound invites you to close your eyes: listen to time. A technique inherited for centuries mastered by
the best craftswomen in Mexico.
Palma weaving is one of the most iconic and oldest Mexican crafts. Used by pre-hispanic cultures throughout a wide range of applications. Petates, food containers, baskets,
sandals, nets and fans to name a few. Its weaving techniques are passed from generation to generation, gifting us nowadays this rich splendid handcraft.
