Legacy Project

Dedicated to inspire and empower the next generation of weavers, the Legacy Project was founded by Martinez Studio in 2014. Initially focused on Sandra’s symbolist works, the collection debuted designs from Wence’s Buffalo Robe series in 2018. To date, over forty Martinez Studio designs have been produced in the Legacy Project.

Directed by master weaver Wence Martinez, Malena Martinez (daughter) and Jacobo Martinez (son-in-law) are our principle weavers. They are proficient in hand dyeing practices and the tonal variations unique to Martinez Studio. Wence travels to the village multiple times a year to introduce the team to new designs.

Malena Martinez

In 2018, Malena began weaving a series of Wence’s Buffalo Robe-inspired works in hand-spun wool under Wence’s guided supervision. This marks the first time Wence has allowed his designs to be woven by anyone but himself.

 

 

Jacobo Martinez

For many years, Jacobo concentrated on rendering traditional Mexican glyphs commonly found in Teotitlán’s tourist market. He takes great pride in weaving Martinez Studio designs.
