Anita Goodesign, constantly draw inspiration from folk art from around the world. The bright, beautiful colours used by the indigenous Otomi people of central Mexico, have not only inspired us at Anita Goodesign, but artistsc designers, and creatives from all around the world!

From clothing to home decor, the playful, vibrant blocks of color make the images appear to dance on the fabric. The wide fill and satin stitches mimic the ornate, dense hand-stitched designs made by Otomi artisans.

ANIMAL SPIRITS
The intricate hand-stitched shapes of Otomi textiles are a marriage of indigenous and Spanish techniques. Though the embroidery style of the Otomi, called “Tenango,” has been in use for hundreds of years, it grew in popularity in the 1960’s after a severe drought brought the Otomi people to rely on their unique folk art to keep their culture alive.
Animals hold a very special place in the shamanic Otomi culture. The remote areas where the Tenango style originated were known for their harsh environments and land was difficult to cultivate. The animals that appear in the Tenango designs are typically animals that appeared in the daily lives of the indigenous people and can also be interpreted as a representation of the resilience of the Otomi people and their culture.
