The Otomi people of central Mexico created this style of embroidery. The designs depict native fauna, flora, and their local beliefs. A whole textile piece can take up to a couple of months depending on the size and detail. The size of the pieces varies from usable small glass coasters, napkins, table runners, tablecloths, bed covering sets, to large curtains. The symbols are hand knitted into the cloth and can even show symbolic stories.
