Pair of hand embroidered Otomi Pillow shams NocheBuena
Exclusive pair of pillow shams. With NocheBuena design
Nochebuena, a combination of noche (night) and buena (good) is the word used for "Christmas Eve." Although the phrase flor de Nochebuena could be translated literally as "Christmas Eve flower," doing so would not be as clear here as using the English name of the flower.
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.
