Folk Art in San Juan Chilateca

This village is in the southern valley just past Santo Tomas Jalieza and en-route to Ocotlan. This is, along with San Antonino Castillo, one of the main places where the finest silk-over-cotton embroidered dresses and blouses are made. Families here take pride in special brocade, lace and cut-out embroidery techniques that distinguish their beautiful work.
