While we were on vacation in Mexico last month, I discovered a new found love for otomi textiles. I picked up a table runner in grey, and a pillow case in the most gorgeous coral shade. The table runner is currently adorning our entry table, and the pillow case is soon to be framed and hung up, so I can swoon over it daily.
These breathtaking textiles are handmade by the Otomi Indians from Hidalgo, Mexico. Each piece can take up to a month and a half to be hand embroidered onto the muslin fabric. The designs are inspired by ancient cliff paintings from the region.
The pieces range from $80 to around $500, depending on the size. Well worth it for the craftsmanship!
I think the otomi designs would make a perfect motif for a Mexican wedding! From the paper goods, to table runners, and more.
