Obsessed with Otomi

I've fallen in love with Mexican Otomi textiles after seeing them in Domino and on some of the big design blogs. These bright, graphic animal print embroideries are handmade by Mexican Otomi indians, and while the cotton doesn't appear to be organic or anything, the dyes are said to be natural and it qualifies as eco enough, I think, to be supporting this centuries-old tradition instead of buying textiles that are mass-produced in China, right? You can order them (along with a lot of other beautiful goodies from Mexico) at Jacaranda Home.
