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 soley 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."(muslim)
The Otomi people are the descendants of one of the earliest complex civilizations of Mesoamerica, dating back before the arrival of the Nahuatl speaking Aztecs around 1000 A.D.
