This chapter discusses the Oaxacan crafts of black pottery, rugs, and carvings. It covers how crafts fit into the broader socioeconomic landscape today; how the factors that previously discouraged economic growth dovetail with those that encourage and nourish ethnic tourism, using the black pottery of San Bartolo Coyotepec as an example; the handwoven rugs of Teotitlán del Valle, the most prestigious, most popular, and most expensive crafts made in the state of Oaxaca; and wood carvings from San Antonio Arrazola and San Martín Tilcajete.

Keywords:   crafts, Oaxaca, ethnic tourism, black potter, handwoven rugs, wood carvings
