EL Nahual
Reforma 412, Centro Histórico
Tel:516-4202


In a city that abounds in artesanía shops of indifferent quality, El Nahual stands out for its focus on select Oaxacan artisans and superior quality handcrafts. It carries excellent general artesanía as well as graphics by noteworthy artists. But it especially highlights four prize-winning Oaxacan artisans: Teotitlán weaver Tito Mendoza (wool tapetes); Santo Tomás Jalieza weaver Abigail Mendoza (fine cotton bags and belts); San Antonino embroiderer Miriam Campos (dresses and shirts); and San Martin Tilcajete wood carver Jesus Soto (alebrijes); Owner Alejandrina Rios has worked with artesanías for years; she speaks English and is well-versed in Mexican popular art.
