Textiles from Mexico


Members' price *

  • Mexican textiles have a vitality that is unsurpassed elsewhere in the Americas. The arts of spinning, weaving, dying and embroidery are practised in hundreds of rural communities where indigenous people retain distinctive clothing styles. Their sense of design and colour is dazzling, and in many cases native traditions are coupled with post-Colonial influences to a fabulous effect.
