mexican embroideryMexican markets are filled with beautiful embroidery. Some of it is handmade and exquisite. Some of it is inexpensive and rougher – I don’t know if it is machine or hand made. I love it all. The exuberant patterns and colors fill me with joy. These first two images are the fronts of dresses that I bought at a stand in Tulum.
