Some sources claim in many households across Mexico, women contribute upwards of 78% of the family income through the sale of their handicrafts - most of which are textiles.  Of course men also partake in handicraft production and sale.  This image shows many of the arts that are collected from the Lake Patzcuaro region, including the pots of Tzintzuntzan, the hats that are woven in Jaracuaro, furniture from Cuanajo, more pottery from Capula, and the Gabons that are hanging on the tree are a poncho associated with many mountain towns such as Charapan, which is outside of Uruapan.
