The Otomi embroidery dates back to ancient times whose people still use these methods today. You can now bring these intricate pieces into your home! Each creation is a reflection of the Otomi culture, drawing inspiration from nature and times past. Choose from the vast color palate made famous by the Otomi, or merge old and new when you purchase the more subdued black and white pieces. Each piece is handmade by an Otomi artisan, paid well over market price. All net profit is poured back into the community.
Mexico’s history is a crossroad between the cultures of Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia. Modern Mexican art is utilitarian at the core, but detailed in beautiful patterns and colors that are rooted in folk art traditions from the indigenous and Spanish eras. We showcase beautiful, hand-crated products for everyday use like shoulder bags and cell phone cases.
