Mexican Embroidered Otomi textile

Embroidered Mexican textiles

The Otomi Indians are experts at embroidering! Here are a few examples of the colorful and skillful needlework done by this group who come from the region surrounding Puebla. One finds their textiles in many places in Mexico–some is quality work and some is not–be sure to check the tightness and closeness of the threads. We usually have a supply of colorful work, both single color and multi-color.  I had the lampshade covered after I got back to the States…I’ve seen pillows, headboards, ottomans, duvet covers, chair upholstery…use your imagination!
