This hand-embroidered Otomi  pillow sham measures 19.5x19.5  inches.  This gorgeous heirloom piece has a lime green polka dot piping around an all cotton rope.  The backing is a sweet smaller pink gingham fabric.  The sweet lime embroidery looks amazing against the gingham fabric. Beautifully lined

Excited to share pieces of this limited edition collection.  Hand embroidered here in Mexico by traditional heritage groups in the villages of Puebla and Oaxaca. A time honored tradition with a spin of classic fabrics.  Plaids, ginghams and polka dots.  Each piece is one of a kind, with the exception of some having a matching partner.  If you see a piece, please make sure to run away with it, as it took close to a year to see these pieces come to fruition.   

 The sham features the superbly crafted needlework of the Otomi people, Most Otomi have settled in the central region of Mexico, however a small group migrated to Oaxaca.  The family that I am working with dedicate their day solely to this fabulous embroidery work.  The women of the Otomi nation are famous throughout Mexico for their finely wrought embroidery. This example of their handicraft features traditional bird, animal, and flower motifs in bright fuchsia-colored cotton thread against a background of rustic cotton fabric known as "manta."(muslin)


This sham is dry clean only. This sham have small zippers and are in need of stuffing. Each piece is beautifully lined so any poly fill cotton will do.  Our pieces are fairly traded and we are excited about the new pieces that are on the drawing board for us.
