SOONA OTOMI 

 I am a Mexican proud of my cultural heritage based in Berlin, who always believed that by marrying a foreigner I would learn about another culture, little I knew that it would be otherwise and that this project is teaching me so much about my own culture. 

 

​Makes me so proud to be Mexican, to have such a history and traditions. With this textile project I share with all of you a piece of Mexico and a piece of the heart of each artisan I work with. 

I feel so honored to present you a hand picked collection of handmade textiles and accessories made by artisans from

Mexico and Latin America. 

Working hand in hand with artisans cooperatives that dedicates their whole time to create these beautiful pieces, some of them take a week to be done others up to eight months until they are finished, in every stitch there´s a story.

I admire and respect their dedicated work and hours invested and firmly believe that by paying fair prices we all contribute to empower their economy.

Last but not least, this is my solo project or how other people says: One woman circus.

This means I do all! From ironing the pieces, to taking the pictures and creating this web site. No I´m not an expert, I studied art way before this digital era arrived but I do this with passion and love and when you have these ingredients all the imperfections can look perfectly well. 

Welcome to my world!
