Tour takes you to three of the best artisans in alebrijes, back-strap weaving, and barro negro. Sites are off the beaten track, but judging by the awards these artists have received they are not unknown to collectors and high-end vendors. Guide was very friendly and easy to talk with. Same with the artists and staff in the studios. They show you everything about their work process and leave you alone to browse the pieces offered for sale.
