After working in indigenous shelters, Gabriela Vargas Pineda decided to start a clothing line and that is how Nativa was founded in Michoacan. This Company works with artisans from Michoacan, Chiapas, Oaxaca, State of Hidalgo, State of Mexico and Guatemala, and its design and manufacturing workshop is located in Morelia, Michoacan. Nativa provides several groups of embroiderers with jobs and tries to keep those sources of employment, this also allows people to know about their history, customs and traditions through the designs, adding value to the pieces of work each artisan creates with their hands. Their designs show the fashion trends according to the time of the year of the designs, they have an explanation of the embroidery they represent, and they are decorated with charms or totems, which makes them unique pieces. This hand embroidered half-moon bag belongs to the Carteras collection. It comes from the Southwest side of the country and tells us that the embroidery is a gift granted to Mayan women by the Goddess of the Moon Ixel. Such gift is passed through generations, to embroider the flowery land and tie it to the sky. Measurements: 17.6”X9.8”
