A very heartfelt hello from San Cristobal de las Casas!... In anticipation of our 2024 relaunch, here I publish a little excerpt from my project diary, which became a newsletter for our lovely email subscriber community back in September.
"...I was tempted by their cross-stitch embroidery, but it was simply too time-consuming and expensive to start the project with. I was also tempted by the 'deshilado' technique (see pictures below). But it was their brocade technique that really got me excited, layered and slick patterns in raised textures over stripes- vibrant colours and what was most surprising was the clean finish!"
