Historical Aztec artifacts 

What comes to your mind when somebody talks about Aztec? To me, Aztec is a world full of colors and beautiful patterns. But in reality, it is more than just colors and patterns. According to Encyclopaedia Britannica, “Aztec, Nahuatl-speaking people who in the 15th and early 16th centuries ruled a large empire in what is now central and southern Mexico. The Aztec are so called from Aztlán (“White Land”), an allusion to their origins, probably in northern Mexico.”

Wikipedia suggests that from 13th to 16th century Aztec Civilization  bloomed in central Mexico. Aztec patterns are mostly geometrical, with lot of detail and use of triangle and sphere. DesiCrafts brings to you a collection of Aztec pattern ribbons, laces and fabrics, so browse on…
