You know when you rub your eyes a bit too long, and see patterns behind your eyelids? As a Tex-Mexican that was born and raised here, my patterns are colorful florals like the ones seen in this sock.
This pattern is reminiscent of the embroidery found on Huipiles, which are traditional embroidered dresses originally found in Indigenous Mexican cultures. It’s also inspired by Otomi or “Tenangos” , another Mexican style of embroidery.
The work behind this embroidery is detailed, meticulous, and requires as much patience as it does talent. My design pays homage to the hard working artisans and the dexterous hands that create these works of art.
