TEOFILA SERVIN BARRIGA
Born on July 20, 1966 in the small Michoacan village of Tzintzuntzan, Teofila Servin grew up watching her mother embroider. Though she began to learn basic stitches as a child, it wasn't until she was 16 that she began to create more complicated pieces.
Working behind the scenes, it is Teofila's husband who has created the countless designs she then embroiders onto various canvases. Teo creates small and large pieces, from napkins and tea towels, patches and pillowcases to purses, blouses, pictures, rebozos and large-scale wall hangings.
38 year later, Teofila has shown her work in international textile exhibitions in Mexico and the US, has won over 60 awards, and has sold to private collectors from around the world.
If you are interested in pieces by this artist, please contact us for more information - or book at tour to visit her in Sanabria, Michoacan Mexico.
