Aguascalientes, located in Southeastern Mexico, is best known for its beautiful cut-out lace. The lace accents the community’s exquisite clothing and tabletop pieces. There are over 100 artisans with whom we partner artisans to create these works of art.
The process begins with the artisan measuring where the lace will be cut out and drawing lines in the fabric. This is followed by the incredible process of cutting out the lace with a sharp razor or needle. Following the cutting of the lace, additional patterned details are traditionally sewn in, such as crosses (Jesusito), flowers (Filigrana) or diamonds (Diamantes).
Due to the delicate material of the piece, we recommend dry cleaning the garment.
