How to get to San Pablo Tijaltepic?

Does anyone know how to get to the small town of San Pablo Tijaltepec by public transport? We'd like to see where the ladies make the wonderful tucked blouses. I think it's near Tlaxiaco but south.

I cannot answer your question directly but my book of Distrito maps shows San Pablo Tijaltepec to be 60 km southeast of Tlaxiaco; the the road goes over at least one mountain range and the last part of the road is dirt. So it is pretty remote; probably requiring a stop for the night in Tlaxiaco.

I would suggest finding out first if there would be anyone who would have blouses to show you when you get there; people in these remote places take their work to regional markets to sell or sell directly to a store in Oaxaca.

If you are spending some time in Oaxaca de Juárez before moving out into other areas of the state of Oaxaca you may want to stop by the Museo Textil de Oaxaca (corner of Hidalgo y Fiallo) to see if someone there could direct you to a co-operative that may have this particular needlework. The museo often hosts expositions of weavers/needleworkers, etc.
