Teotitlán del Valle is 24 kilometers (15 miles) southeast of Oaxaca City. Be sure to go into town and visit some of the family workshops located inside their homes. Many will be more than happy to invite you inside and give you a personal demonstration of how they dye their wool and make the rugs.To visit Juana Mendoza Martínez and her family's workshop, they are located on Calle 20 de Noviembre #19 (half way between the mercado and iglesia).
