Mexico – The land of dense rainforests, deep canyons, vibrant culture, and jaw-dropping beaches.
Being a country with so much culture, diversity, delicious food, and incredible scenery to offer, Mexico’s Fashion scene also speaks for itself.
According to Statista.com, Mexico was the 3rd largest apparel manufacturer in Latin America in 2019 and was ranked as the 10th largest textile-producing country worldwide in WTO’s (World Trade Organization) 2020 report.
Over the past ten years, Mexico’s fashion and textile industry went through a massive change, turning it into one of the country’s main income and employment sources.
Due to the rich cultural history of Mexico and traditions. You can even see modern versions of pre-Hispanic clothing pieces like “enredos” (wrap dresses), “fajas” (cloth belts), or ”huipils” (a type of tunic), and handcrafted goods like rugs and rebozos (a kind of shawl).
I believe that Mexican fashion is deeply influenced by iconic, colorfully dyed (mostly with natural dyes) fabrics with eye-catching patterns and extraordinary embroideries.
Now, let’s take a closer look at what Mexico has to offer with these 28 Mexican Fashion Brands.
