We were brought this Otomi embroidery piece for framing and kept it simple to keep the focus on the artwork itself. Care was taken to ensure archival methods were used so no damage is done to the piece in the framing process.
Otomi embroidery is the Mexican embroidery style known as Tenangos by the indigenous Otomi people. Each piece is hand embroidered on ivory muslin and the designs are symbols based on the native flora and fauna of the region. On average a Tenango such as a bedspread or an Otomi tablecloth can take up to a year to be completed.
