Miniature Crafts And Their Makers
Palm Weaving In A Mexican Town
by Katrin S. Flechsig 
 
Katrin Flechsig presents the first in-depth ethnographic and historical examination of Mexico's miniature palm craft industry, taking readers behind the scenes to explain how and why these folk arts have undergone miniaturization over the past several decades.


She reveals how such factors as tourism and the construction of national identity have contributed to an ongoing demand for the tiny creations.

The playfulness of the crafts is also contrasted with the often harsh economic and political realities of life in the community..
