Set of 4 Otomi placemats, made from hand embroidered Otomi fabric in multicolour.
This fabric is very unique and hand-embroidered by the native Otomi people from Hidalgo, Mexico. The Women of the Otomi are famous for their finely 'blind stitch' technique. The fabric often features traditional bird, animal and flower motifs in bright natural dyed cotton tread against a background of rustic, environmentally friendly and non-toxic cotton, called 'Manta' They say the motifs are inspired by the wallpaintings on the rock formations in that region.

Bought a set similar to this one and my husband and I used them all of summer. We keep getting compliments on them. Easily washable when there's a strain and it doesnt hurt the fabric!
