OLLI OTOMI EMBROIDERY

Developing the special collaboration between Olli and the Otomi embroiderers, Olli's first project is centered around a pride craft started in the 60's after a debilitating drought hit the sustenance farming community in the town of Tenango, Hidalgo, Mexico.  This embroidery style, born from necessity and scarcity of resources can be traced back to its Spanish and Aztec roots with its use of satin stitch and repeating side profile motives. It takes an embroiderer 3-4 months to complete an Olli lounger.
