The design is mainly inspired from patterns of the traditional embroidery work of the Otomi womens from the Tenango Valley of Hidalgo, Mexico.
This embroidery reflects the traditions and beliefs of the Otomi people, comes from ancient cave paintings located in the Tenango region, and symbolises the way of living in harmony with nature and the rich cultural inheritance and ethnic identity of the Otomi people.
The state of Hidalgo is in the mountains of the Sierra Madre Oriental where the states of Veracruz, Hidalgo and Puebla meet.
