Weave of Mexico

Textiles are everywhere in Mexico.  It’s a big part of their economy dating back to the pre Hispanic period when fibres from the yucca & palm were used.  The really excellent work is very pricy, but I hope to bring home something this trip.  This painting is an interpretation of a loose style weave (something that I would probably do, haha). It certainly does not represent the fine workmanship known for this area.   The one thing there is no shortage of here is colour.  It’s vibrantly displayed a thousand ways.  The colours of Mexico
