Servilletas de Huixtan Verde
Set of 2 napkins hand embroidered on 100% cream linen. The napkins are embroidered with floral designs in shades of green leaves and finished with a zig-zag border around the periphery.
These napkins were made by a community of artisans in Huixtan, Chiapas. The traditional embroidery typically showcases full, filled flower designs done on blouses and linens. The technique is known as “Bordado de nuditos” or embroidery of knots, as many fine knots are repeated to create these intricate patterns. The community is comprised of just seven women, and each piece took 40 days to complete.
