The History of Embroidery in Mexico
The art of embroidery in Mexico dates back to pre-Columbian times, where local tribes created intricate designs on animal hides and woven fabrics. After the arrival of the Spanish, embroidery techniques were further refined, with new materials, stitches and techniques being introduced in the 16th century. The influence of the Spanish brought with it the colonization of Mexico, and the birth of a new style of embroidery that combined pre-Columbian techniques with European design.
Materials and Techniques
In Mexican embroidery, the use of natural fibers such as cotton, wool or silk is common. Before embroidery begins, the fabric is first washed to remove any dirt or impurities. The designs are then sketched directly onto the fabric, and embroidery begins. Each stitch is done with precision, as it is important to ensure the design is not distorted. Techniques such as satin stitching, shadow work, and cross-stitch are all used to create the beautiful patterns we see in Mexican embroidery. Multiple colors are incorporated into each design, adding to the rich and vibrant feel of the final product.
