Details

Tenango is one of Mexico's most widely recognized embroidery styles, but few people know it is from a small town called Tenango de Doria, Hidalgo, an Otomi community. By Guadalupe Navarro, it is a good example of traditional embroidery motifs which focus on local plants and animals. The reverse side is solid ivory with a zipper closure.

"Very pretty, but loose stitchwork feels potentially delicate"

This looks exactly like it does in the picture, and it is just gorgeous! I do have a slight nitpick about the design and that it goes right up to the top, and to see the birds head you have to dent the pillow like in the picture, but thats a minor thing.Something potentially more serious to be aware of is that the stitchwork is less dense and less tight than some other embroidery I have gotten from Novica at around the same price point. It still looks very good and actually gives it in aesthetic different from my other throws, however I am a little bit worried about pulling out the threads if I lean against it too much or run my fingers over the embroidery excessively. I dont have children or cats but if I did, I would probably want to keep this in a room they couldnt get to.
