Beatriz is in her late 50s and has been doing embroidery all her life. She learnt the art from her mother and has learnt a range of techniques through years of practise. Hand embroidery techniques such as the french knots, stem stitch and woven wheel could never be replicated by a machine. She works meticulously and carefully creating beautiful designs from her home in the outskirts of Mexico City. She visits us with her daughter who helps her prepare the threads before embroidery.
When hand washing is not an option, use the most delicate cycle on your machine. The use of cold water is recommended and never hot water. Turn the jacket inside out to protect the embroidery when washing and prevent the sun from fading the fabric while drying.
