Mexican Clothing› Mexican Textiles
Mexican textiles have a long tradition within the indigenous cultures in Mexico. When you visit the small towns in the South of Mexico, you can still find people using and wearing authentic textiles.
The tradition among Mexicans seems to be disappearing as more people immigrate to the bigger and more modern cities, and try to fit with society. Unfortunately there is not a lot of respect for "Mexicans Indians" in the urban places, and government and society don't do enough to preserve their culture and traditions.
There is now a wave that is trying to keep the traditions and culture that make Mexico such a culture-rich country, but we are years away from seeing some results. Some of the initiatives we are seeing are teaching of the indigenous languages in elementary schools in some regions in Mexico such as Mayan in the Yucatan Peninsula.
Authentic Mexican clothing is very appealing to foreigners who visit Mexico for its color and delicate pattern. Most garments are handmade products (embroidered or woven) which puts a considerable amount of labor into the product.
The issue Mexicans artisans are facing is competition from China and other countries producing copies of their popular designs.
Genuine textiles from Mexico follow the same millinery techniques and have that special touch that makes them unique and authentic.
In Mexico you can find trendy clothing items such as dresses, blouses, and the traditional guayabera from the different regions in Mexico. In regards to Mexican textiles:
