Colours of Mexico

From the brightly coloured bunting that hangs in every street to the traditional textiles such as serape blankets, the Mexican way of life is tinged with vivid colour. Mexican culture is characterised by a rich heritage, a unique artistic tradition and a devotion to striking hues that express the passion and creativity of the people. We have also included a selection of flamboyant folk art and a range of traditional crafts from Central and South America to add to the fiesta. The palette to keep in mind is one of a warm desert scene with burnt oranges and vibrant yellows, the bright pinks of flowering cacti, vivid ocean blues and intense reds.
