Popotillo Wheat Straw Wreath

Sale price$900.00

The Popotillo wreath is no other than wheat straw that has been masterly woven into a large intricate pattern. They are beautifully subtle artworks that lend an organic feel to any room. We love ours in the bedroom as a reminder of the rising sun every morning.

Made in Michoacan
Wheat was a crop that was assigned as a recompense in colonial times, for those indigenous groups that had agreed to help the crown conquer the Aztec empire. A license to grow wheat was a very profitable venture, as it guaranteed an income for the bread that was consumed in the urban centers by the new Castizo population. Now wheat is grown freely, but certain states like Michoacan and Tlaxcala have a strong legacy of bread and therefore wheat byproduct, such as the popotillo. Luckily for us, it is fashioned into beautiful pieces available at La Embajada.
