All OTOMI's are NOT created equally. Did you know that for every 50 Otomi coverlet/Table cloth pieces that are brought to us we only choose 5 to 10? The rest get pushed into the tourist markets. Abel scrutinizes each piece for tight and clean embroidery work. He picks the absolute best or nothing at all! We haven't had larger pieces these days because we have had a pre-order wait list. Our buyers know we have the best and will wait for it. It isn't often we are able to offer a multi colored piece these days because our list has been too long. the list is NOW complete! Yay Team! Here you go! Be quick...these never last.

The textile 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)
The Otomi people are the descendants of one of the earliest complex civilizations of Meso-america, dating back before the arrival of the Nahuatl speaking Aztecs around 1000 A.D.
