“The trade is familiar, because our grandparents and parents inherited our taste for creating typical garments from the State of Oaxaca, but above all this profession continues to feed us,” he said.

The prices, he said, vary depending on the garment: an embroidered or frayed blouse costs between 350 to 500 pesos, while a huipil costs 15 to 18 thousand pesos, “this cost is higher because of the time it takes to person to do it.”

“The elaboration of a huipil has a process of between three and four months, due to the complexity of the garment, since everything is done through the waist loom and stable of different colors, mostly red. They are used for religious ceremonies, either XV years or weddings, ”he mentioned.

Victoria finally said that other products they sell are mole, sweets, as well as mezcal and hair accessories, which are well received by Mexicans, who pay the fair price without haggling.
