Recently a customer asked if I could do a garment that would reflect the Mexican cultural influences. Coming from this land of Svens, Trolls and Lutefisk, doing something based on Scandinavia would have been easy!
So I have started researching Mexican traditional garments. Some great information and inspiration!
The other garment is the Quechquemitl, or as we all know it the poncho. But, again, it is the vibrant designs that really make this garment. some are small and just shoulder covers, and others are large. Very versitile and efficient to produce on the loom.
Anyway, it has been fun to research this - who knows where it will lead, stay tuned!
