In November 2012 the Museo Textil de Oaxaca (MTO), located in southern Mexico's Oaxaca City, presented an exhibition entitled Looms that Sprout New Leaves: Young Textile Artists of Oaxaca. Twenty-four weavers and embroiderers, ages 8 to 20 and coming from different regions of Oaxaca, participated in the show. Its mission was to motivate this group to preserve their traditions through a museological experience. Hector Manuel Meneses Lozano is director of the Museo Textil de Oaxaca.
