The textile industry is a very important part of Mexico’s economy. The foot petal loom was introduced to Mexico after the Spanish conquest and was most widely used in the central and northern parts of Mexico, allowing for bigger pieces to be made. The backstrap loom dates back to the pre-Hispanic era (before the 1500s) and is smaller which allows for different techniques and more intricate designs on smaller pieces.
Machines have replaced many handmade textiles due to their ability to offer higher production rates and lower cost.
