LEATHER FRETWORK / CHIMALHUACAN, ESTADO DE MEXICO
In colonial times, the charros, our equivalent of the cowboys, were mainly mestizos and some noble indigenous people who had the privilege of riding horses with their beautiful suits made of wool with hand-cut leather applications, a technique known as openwork.
It serves as a protection so that the friction of the rope does not break the fabric of the suit when lassoing the cow from the horse.The traditional charrería costumes are used every year in the community of Chimalhuacán, State of Mexico.
