My appreciation for textiles has taken me around the world, but I keep returning to the incredible artistry of my Mexican roots. In Mexico, I travel to the small craft villages where the weaving and embroidery traditions have been handed down for generations. There I work with the artisans to adapt their intricate handloom and embroidery designs to a more contemporary look. We use local materials and European linens to enhance their traditional beauty.
Maria Brunel supports the preservation of our Mexican textile traditions and is excited to partner with these remarkable artists.
