Uranden is one of the isolated islands where Purhépechas culture is the strongest. I saw many women in traditional costume during my visit. The men still use butterfly nets to fish for chales. Bob Freund 7/7/2005 for more information contact: info@mexicantextiles.com

The island has a church and a restaurant; the people here go to market in canoes with all their goods since there are no cars or roads on the island. The composite picture gives you a good idea of the setting in and around the island. It was a real job to decide which pictures to use, but since this is a textile study and not a tour guide I thought the textile pictures were more important.
