Monte Albán
Monte Albán pyramids and Oaxaca textile embroidery


Monte Albán pyramids are one of the most touristic places in the beautiful state of Oaxaca, and we try to complement the design with the typical geometric embroidery that the artisans and native people of Oaxaca use for their colorful textiles.

Which place, city and country is featured in your design? (place/city/country)

Monte Albán, Oaxaca, México

Describe why you have chosen this place as a visual? What story does your design tell?

The pyramids that exist in Mexico are unique and tell a lot of our history. Monte Albán is one of the most beautiful and touristic places in Oaxaca, and we tought it would be a good idea to present it mixed with the embroidery elements that artisans use in their colorful textiles.
