Mexican textiles have a vitality that is unsurpassed elsewhere in the Americas. The arts of spinning, dyeing, weaving and embroidery are practiced in hundreds of rural communities where indigenous peoples retain distinctive clothing styles, sometimes mixing this with post-Colonial influences. The author draws on her extensive travels in Mexico to provide a living context for these varied textiles. Techniques and clothing styles are explained and brief commentaries highlight the key features that make the designs so uniquely Mexican.
