At Anita Goodesign, we are passionate about celebrating the rich and diverse traditions of folk art from around the world. The indigenous Otomi people of central Mexico have long been recognized for their exquisite craftsmanship and the vibrant colors they infuse into their creations. It is their captivating artistry that has not only captured our hearts but also inspired countless artists, designers, and creatives across the globe.
The Otomi folk art is characterized by its lively and intricate designs, filled with playful blocks of vibrant colors that seem to come alive on fabric. It is this captivating aesthetic that we sought to capture and bring to life in our Otomi Quilt collection. Each design in the collection is a testament to the beauty and ingenuity of the Otomi artisans, as we aim to pay homage to their remarkable craft.
As you stitch each block of the Otomi Quilt, you will notice the wide fill and satin stitches that closely mimic the ornate and dense hand-stitched designs that are a hallmark of Otomi art. The careful selection of thread colors and the meticulous stitching techniques employed in these designs ensure that the essence and authenticity of the Otomi style are preserved in every stitch.
