his wall hanging is beautifully embroidered (100% by hand). It features a multitude of birds (including a quetzal, doves, and a hummingbird), bees, butterflies, insects, and a deer. If you want to brighten up a wall or are a fan of Mexican folk art (or have one on your gift list), this high-quality piece is a great candidate.
This style of embroidery comes from several towns in the southern part of central Mexico. The largest of these towns is named Tenango de Doria, and at some point, the embroidery itself became known as “Tenangos”. It’s also known as “Otomi” embroidery… The Otomi are the indigenous people of this geographical area.
