Hand Embroidered Otomi Stocking

  • $80.00

Hand sewn & embroidered Otomi stocking.

The Otomi culture is one of the older complex Mesoamerican cultures, and lived peacefully near the Olmecs until the Nahua arrived around 1000 BCE. Otomi textiles, also known as tenangos take weeks or even years to embroider, and are said to be based off of cliff painting in the Tepehua-Otomi mountains in the area. Some say that they may be also inspired by cave paintings in the Mexican Plateau area.

Due to the individual nature of each hand sewn piece, patterns and colors vary.

Dimensions: ~18" x 6"
