Every Huarache size has a slightly different weave, and the weave sequence for each size must be worked out so that the vamp and quarter weaves meet to create one continuous woven surface.

A few weeks ago I stopped by to visit Don Salvador and his son Fernando Cisneros.
They proudly showed me that they had recently been featured in a Mexican style magazine and told me how a photographer had come all the way from Mexico City to take pictures of them.
They are very nice photos and its a pleasure to share them.
You can reach Don Salvador and Fernando by telephone at Tel. 372.426.0318 – Cel. 342.103.3152, or visit them in very traditional, pretty and authentic small town of Concepción de Buenos Aires in Jalisco.
To see more photos of their Huarache styles visit the Huarache Directory Website HERE, or simply search “Cisneros” in the “The Huarache Searcher” bar on the right side of this page to also see how their exceptional Huaraches are made.

Maybe a little unrelated, but this short video about Tim George, rawhide braiding craftsman from Oregon is very inspiring.
Not only, but the rawhide braiding tradition arrived in the USA from Argentina, through Mexico and watching this video I felt a very strong connection between western rawhide braiding and Huarache weaving.

I have posted about the traditional Mexican Burra Footwear already a couple of times on this blog and consider Burras another fascinating area of footwear research. These Burras I was lucky to photograph also at the Bata Museum in Toronto, their origins are from the 1950’s Uruapan area of Mexico. Although I have never seen a similar Burra design during my research in Mexico.
