Talk with Arisbeth González, Otomí embroiderer
Originally from Pahuatlán in the Mexican state of Puebla, Arisbeth González began her embroidery apprenticeship at the age of six. A regular collaborator with Carla Fernández Casa de Moda, she specialises in Otomí embroidery, which she inherited from her grandmother. Recognisable by their colourful motifs inspired by flora and fauna, Otomí embroidery has been the subject of numerous plagiarism attempts by major fashion brands.
