About The Designer

ONORA was founded by Maggie Galton, an art historian turned designer from New York and Maria Eladia Hagerman, a Mexican born designer living in Los Angeles.
They were brought together by their shared passion for Mexico’s cultural richness and their belief in applying innovation to Mexico’s rapidly fading artisanal sector with the final goal of preserving this important component of Mexico’s identity.
Together they have formed ONORA – a brand dedicated to the creation of high end, hand crafted textiles and home accessories in collaboration with Mexican artisans.
Each exquisite piece created by ONORA expresses the core principles at the base of the brand: the strong commitment to social impact, the profound respect for tradition and craftsmanship and the spirit of collaboration with artisans.

About The Technique

The rebozo, a rectangular shawl woven on a back strap loom are finished with complex macrame' fringe work, has been a distinctive traditional accessory for Mexican women since the colonial era. The characteristic feature of the Tenancingo rebozos is their complex patterns created using the resist dyeing technique know as ikat; a method of patterning woven fabric by tie-dyeing the warp yarns (warp ikat) the weft yarns (weft ikat) or both (double ikat) by hand knotting groups of threads and submerging them in dye prior to weaving.
