Chatinos embroideries

Santa Catarina Juquila

Culture embroidered in colors

Something that makes the Magical Town of Juquila attractive are the colors that paint its people, wearing their traditional clothing with those iconic embroidery of the region.

The art of Chatinos embroideries is a tradition that preserves all the history and cultural richness of Oaxaca. Women proudly wear more than a garment; they wear the ancestral legacy of their ancestors.

Yaitepec is a municipality that is 176 kilometers from the capital, which seeks that the artisan work that is done here, transcends borders and reaches each person to share their ancestral heritage.

Each design alludes to nature, such as birds, flowers and other animals of the region, embroidered in cross stitch. Simple and gala blouses, the latter embroidered with fine gold or silver threads.

This practice has become so popular that it has caused other parts of Mexico to turn their eyes not only to Yaitepec, but also to all of Oaxaca, showing that quality is better than quantity.
