In the mid 1500’s the Spanish arrived in Mexico and found the indigenous people weaving personal garments on back strap looms. The Spaniards introduced larger foot looms, which are still used today for blankets, table linens and wider fabrics. Dress up your table this season with hand woven table linens from Patzcuaro, Mexico; use richly colored fabric napkins for textural accents. Check out the Muy Picante Latin motif aprons and hot mitts from the Baja. All featured this month at Casa Latina. Music by in-house artist Duane Ewing at the Merchants Gathering Building, 300 Hull Avenue.
