Punto de Cruz: Mexican Artwork

Hat is it about Mexican Needlework Artistry (also known as punto de cruz or cross legged) that is the conventional needlecraft from the state of Michoacan Mexico which makes it such a sought after Mexican Artistry?

1 reason might be filament throughout the cloth surrounded by needlepoint, including a flower with colors of purple, magenta and lavender using an aqua and maroon background representing the colors of these seasons and possibly the seasons of existence of the individual supporting the needlework artistry.

Artisans buy “guanego“-a white silk blouse- and decorate them with blossoms in needlepoint also known as “punto de cruz” – cross stitch- round the neckline. They nudge blossoms into existence like leading a sterile breadth of nothingness into the edge of a sheer cliff where it warms deliciously into high-spirited colours.

Cocucho, Michoacan, Mexico is well-known for its tasteful clay jar but has also earned a reputation for the Mexican needlework artistry. The best challenge of this craft presents itself if the boundaries are created for various panels of colour. They need to count the amount of lines and begin creating the cross legged. They create blouses, dresses, men’s shirts, aprons, napkins, and rebozos. Most artisans prefer to not utilize the identical design twice. They begin with a different one and complete one design.

The palms of several artisans withstand the pestilence of time, and wake still another bit of cloth from its slumber. Among the most well-known things of this Mexican Needlework Artistry is that the “Guanengos.” Guanengos are blouses that need a few weeks to finish.

While plentiful flourishes of purple, magenta, orange, mauve, sea blue and lush green dash from torrents round the guanengos of now, they have not always controlled such visual significance. The vibrant designs started on the scene from the 1980’s.
