OTOMI FLOWER SHIRT
The Otomi people are masters of embroidery. These artisans still use ancient methods today to marry their artwork with fashion! Each piece is handmade by an indigenous artisan paid well above market price. Choose from the more subdued black and white scheme or the famous, bright color palate of the Otomi. All net profit is used to give back to the artisans’ 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.
