Textiles

Mexican textiles are undeniably one of the most admired forms of artisanal craftsmanship in the world. The National Museum of Mexican Art’s textile collection contains almost 400 articles of clothing and decorative pieces made in Mexico, all highlighting the beauty and complexity of the Mexican textile tradition. Artifacts include dresses used in folkloric dance, embroideries, huipiles (blouses or dresses), indigenous outfits, men’s clothing and weavings.
