Immerse yourself in a world of color and tradition at Las Caracolas, our exclusive boutique located in the heart of Hotel Casa San Pancho. In Las Caracolas you will find Mexican clothing and textiles of the highest quality created by talented women artisans from the communities of the highlands of Chiapas.
Each and every one of these garments are unique pieces, hand-woven by artisan women following their own ancestral techniques. The garments are made in communities in the highlands of Chiapas and around San Cristobal de las Casas.
The "telar de cintura" is a pre-Hispanic textile technique that is transmitted from generation to generation, it expresses its own cultural richness and has characteristics that distinguish it from other techniques and at the same time gives it identity.
We market these garments within the framework of fair trade, which aims to value and give prestige to the work of indigenous women who today are the pillar of the family economy.
