Apartment Therapy Chicago recently did a post on Otomi textiles, handmade fabric produced by the Otomi Indians of Hidalgo, Mexico. The style has seen a surge in popularity recently, and we found a bunch of different applications for the look...

Otomi textiles look great as a bedspread, but if you don't want such a bold pattern in the bedroom (or don't want to spend upwards of $300) there are other ways to incorporate the pattern into your home. The craftsmanship that goes into the fabric makes it truly a piece of art, so why not frame a square like in this house tour from Decor8? You could also hang one of Jacaranda's table runners in a similar fashion (because putting one on a table where it is just asking to be stained seems wrong to us). For a similar pattern, we love Lena Corwin's dresser project featured in her book, Printing By Hand. These melamine plates and trays in 'Acapulco' from Jonathan Adler are pretty great, too. Ranging from $10 to $28, it is an inexpensive way to add the style to your home.
