Otomi Fabric

Probably everyone in blogland has seen the recent Otomi fabric headboard DIY post by Grace Bonney from design*sponge but I couldn't resist spreading the word a little further just in case you don't have the slightest idea about what I'm talking about... What an ambitious project! I'd love to drape every household item with Otomi fabric, even clothe the kids in it...

Embroidered Otomi fabric is handmade by Mexican Otomi Indians. The colours and characters are absolutely beautiful. Otomi fabric and other lovely textiles are available from Jacaranda, it is pretty much the most reliable online store where you can purchase a variety of Otomi fabric in various colour combinations and sizes. I've been eying off the Jacaranda selection for a long time and I love visiting the site for a quick inspirational fix. If you are in Melbourne Otomi fabric is also available in store at Market Import, Armadale, worth a visit no matter what!
