Huaraches in Zamora, MichoacanPosted: March 2, 2011
Huaraches in Zamora, Michoacan mainly come from Sahuayo that is located only a few hours west. However there were 2 styles from Sahuayo that I had not seen before.
These black ones are a wide strip twist on the `Cruzado´ style.
This ‘Petatillo’ Huarache was dyed with motor oil and quite similar to another pair I picked up in Sahuayo.
There were also 2 local styles that are made at a local ‘rancho’ which I found very interesting for their weave and toe shape.
Notice the heel piece construction is external like Burras.
