SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESI love the Otomi Culture. I believe is one of the best kept secrets in Mexico. The Otomi people live in remote places like this, in the Sierra Madre. Where you can find the highest mountains packed with green trees. Where you can breath fresh air and hear the little birds sing.

The families values are very strong. They have made it possible to keep their traditions alive, despite of the modern world. And you can easily tell they are proud of who they are.

Otomi women are worldwide known as very talented, specially for their embroidery techniques. Their embroidered pieces of art are better known as “Tenangos”. oto3Their designs are simple, but beautiful and creative. They usually paint fantastic animals, a combination of the animals that live among them in the Sierra Madre.
