Designer Approved Otomi Wallpaper – Showit Blog

I’m currently working on a Mexican fast-casual restaurant design. The owners reached out to me due to my love of color and my love of Mexican food! They actually found my site because I wrote about one of my favorite taco places nearby and when they were looking for inspiration and they found me. We are currently nailing down the vibe and color story and I’m happy to report that we are not going with the typical Mexican restaurant decor. Around me, it’s a lot of luchadors, Day of the Dead, and lots of ornately patterned tiles. Now, I love a patterned tile, but I want to go a different direction with it. I also love everything about Mexico and its culture but there is much more than Mexican wrestlers and Day of the Dead skulls. So, we are going a different route and embracing the beautiful colorful places in Mexico. I immediately thought of Otomi textiles because it’s something I always pick up when I travel to Mexico. Otomi embroidery is made by the Otomi indigenous people in central Mexico. Producing an Otomi textile piece can take months. The pieces are said to be inspired by their surroundings and some even say inspiration comes from cave drawings.


I searched high and low for different Otomi-inspired pieces to use in my design and I wanted to share my findings.

Row 2:

Which is your favorite? I think they are a wonderful way to add some color and a global touch to your home. You can just frame a piece and use it as artwork. The possibilities are endless! What would you do with Otomi inspired wallpaper?
