OTOMÍ

This class was so much fun!
As inspiration for my project, I used Otomí embroidery. Mexican Indigenous women of all ages have been making this beautiful embroidery since the 60's. The most popular kind of embroidery is from a little town called Tenango in the state of Hidalgo, México. Based on this exquisite tradition, I made a pattern collection that represents Otomí embroidery. I love the bold colors and funky shapes.

I got a bit carried away and designed a full collection..

Here are the patterns, I made a smaller scale comparison so you guys can see the whole pattern.

Some products that would be fun to make:

And that's it, I hope you like it!
