The Tabasco Embroidered Strip’s Journey

Here we are, it is now December and our favorite time of the year is around the corner. As we wait for the holidays to arrive, we want to share with you a little more about how we carry out the search process for the Tabasco embroidery strip for our contemporary designs.

Get ready for the ride! Put your seat belts on and let’s start the drive.

Every week we start our trip from our factory to the municipality of Nacajuca, which is approximately about 40 to 45 minutes away from Villahermosa, Tabasco. From there to the communities it take about 10 to 15 minutes to reach the homes of the artisans. 

Once we arrive, the majority of times we find the artisans making the traditional strip, pockets, or other designs we have commissioned from them. All of our designs are sketched out first and then we classify which stitch they will be made with. 

Every trip we take, we always make sure to bring with us the materials we know they will need like threads, needles, and sketches, so that the making of the embroidery becomes easy for the artisans. 

Our colleagues supervise that the strips are made correctly and have the measurements that are required. Additionally, they make sure any custom orders get taken care of. To end the trip, the artisans always have food prepared for us such as pozol, tamales or sometimes a caldo de pollo.

We are always grateful for their hard work and dedication. Additionally, we always show them the comments left behind by happy customers admiring the beauty and details in the products. The artisans are the first to know about any comment and good wishes left in all of our networks. 

That is why when you send us your comments and good wishes through our direct messages or comments, the first to know are the artisans.

We hope you enjoyed learning a little more about how our Tabasco strip is developed. We hope you know that your comments are always read and appreciated. Don’t forget to click here if you want to shop our clothing! See y’all next time.
