In the Yucatan these hand embroidered tablecloths (or bed coverlets) are known as Chupacabra, like the mythical Vampiric creatures. Elsewhere they are known as Tenango, hand-stitched by the Otomi people. In Xcalacoco, the tables were dressed with them, in bright green, and orange, and pink and I found a red one in Playa del Carmen to bring home. I wanted to bring home one for all my girlfriends. But I discover that you can find them on ebay here.
This beautiful navy cloth is available at Laviva Home.
And this mid-century modern chair is available at Jacaranda Home.
I can't help it. Now you know all my secrets.
