Mexican textiles: when you think of Mexican textiles, you probably think of colorful fabrics or perhaps wool serapes. The festive table setting above combines Mexican and Southwestern elements for just such a distinctive appeal.
Mexican rugs and textiles make beautiful pillows. The large lumbar pillow on the bed above has a highly textural and graphic style. The charcoal gray wool combined with bright and soft colors lends a sophisticated yet primitive feel to the room.
The wool rug above was woven by an artisan in Oaxaca, Mexico. When I travel to Oaxaca, there are always hundreds of beautiful wool rugs to choose from. The color choices are as varied as the patterns. You can find very colorful or more neutral wool rugs in a range of sizes. These classic Mexican hand loomed wool rugs compliment many decorative styles.
Mexican Otomi, or Tenango, textiles are known to be playful and joyous pieces of Mexican hand crafted textiles. The Otomi textile above went to a client who planned to frame it and hang it as a focal point above a fireplace. Completely hand embroidered, Otomi textiles range in quality just like any textile that is hand made. Some artisans simply have more skill than others. I do my best to select only well-crafted Otomi pieces for my shop.
Hot Pink is one of my favorite colors and Mexican textiles provide a wide range of options for me to choose from. The Mexican table runner above is just right for a standard size table or it could be worn as a wrap. A Morrissey Fabric customer purchased one of these lively Mexican fabrics to make toto bags.
