The group of Nahua embroiderers from Santa Catarina is made up of 22 women, originally from the municipality of Acaxochitlán, Hidalgo. They began working together in 2011 through financing granted by the System for the Integral Development of the Family (DIF) of the State of Hidalgo.
With this support, training in design, organization, administration and Fair Trade was implemented.
The women that make up this group are:
Adela Santos, Adelina Cruz, Agripina Rojas, Cresencia Martínez, Crispina Cruz, Delia Abundio, Diana Escorcia, Epifania Ignacio, Gabriela Guerrero, Inés Vargas, Juana Hernández, Margarita Cruz, María del Rosario Santos, Ofelia Méndez, Severiana Bartolo, Teodora Cruz, María Vargas, Adelaida Rojas, María Guadalupe Rojas, Juana Cabrera, María Flora Rojas, Martina Hernández.
This group of artisans embroiders their pieces with the technique of cross-stitch embroidery and thread, embodying in each of their embroidery iconographies inspired by the vegetation of their surroundings and their religious beliefs.
