It is a textile work of art (cotton, manta) embroidered and colored, typical of the Tepehua-Otomi culture that lives in the region of Tenango de Doria, in the state of Hidalgo, Mexico
The process of making a Tenango is quite arduous and very tiring: it takes a lot of creativity, precision and patience to draw and embroider. The artists of the collective tell us that they cannot embroider when they are angry or in a hurry, because the quality of the pieces is not good. The daily work time is therefore three hours and can go from 2 weeks to several months, depending on the size of the piece.
