EMBROIDERED HISTORY: COLCHAS AND THE STITCH THAT DEFINED A REGION

The Harwood Museum of Art
Spanning continents and centuries, the Northern New Mexican colcha is a journey of craft, culture, and geopolitics that is defined by the hands of New Mexican women.  Colchas are embroidered textiles or blankets whose origins have been traced as far back as the 16thcentury when New Mexico was New Spain, and expeditions packed with Iberian textiles were making their way up the Rio Grande Valley.
