ABOUT CHENALHO, CHIAPAS


Tzotzil: a native Mayan language spoken by the indigenous Tzotzil Maya people in the state of Chiapas.

In our new line Casa Xali collaborated with a group of native artisans from the pueblo Chenalhó in the state of Chiapas, Mexico and followed the journey of their symbology and traditions in textiles.

"The embroidery that characterizes the indigenous textiles of Chiapas represent a rich, complex, and beautiful language that has allowed our pueblos to conserve a very significative part of its history. The agile hands of the artesanas don't only produce beautiful designs; they speak and sing through symbols full of meaning." - Book Diseno E Iconografia Chiapas
