On a more personal
note, I, Pantaleon Ruiz Martinez was born in 1974 in Teotitlan Del Valle,
Oaxaca, Mexico. As a child, I worked with my parents out in the fields
taking care of their crops. At the same time, my father Estanislao Ruiz
and my grandmother Delfina Mendoza taught me how to weave in the Zapotec
traditional way. Later on, in 1988, I began to exhibit some of the works
of various Zapotec artists in the Plaza De Artesania in Teotitlan Del
My first trip
to California was back in 1990. By 1999 I saw the potential in opening
a web site where I could show my own designs, as well as introducing my
family’s works on Tapetes. This was the initiation of Arriero rugs.
All this came about after obtaining experiences and working with people
in the community of Teotitlan. Some of these people have been selling
and exporting Tapetes to the U.S. (in states such as New Mexico, Arizona,
Colorado, Texas, California) and other places around the world.
