Camaxtli is comprised of 13 artisans in San Bernardino Contla in Tlaxcala, Mexico. They masterfully weave beautiful serapes using traditional techniques and designs that originate from the community of Saltillo. Camaxtli helps these artisans find an outlet for their product and reach a broader audience. By making the serapes, the artisans are able to earn an income and preserve a cultural heritage that connects them to their roots.

Technique

Artisans working with Camaxtl create beautiful pom pom and tassel blankets using acrylic yarn and cotton. To create each pom pom, yarn is carefully looped around nails on a small board. Tassels take 700 loops, and the round pom poms take 900 loops before being trimmed. Each blanket is made in approximately 15 hours, and it can take about three days to set up the loom for 60 blankets. Camaxtl also works with Preciosita, an artisan group based out of Puebla, Mexico. Preciosita artisans create the pom poms on these blankets. Each pom pom and tassel blanket is exclusive to our collection at The Little Market.

The culture of Mexico is one of the richest and most ancient in the western hemisphere. Its cultural, geographical and historical wealth is palpable and it can be appreciated through its architecture and pyramids, and traditions. Most of Mexico’s art is still created through processes that have not changed since the Aztec civilization. Clay pottery, vibrant designs, embroidered cotton garments, wool shawls and outer garments with angular designs and colorful baskets and rugs are some of the common items associated with Mexican art.
