Among the embroideries of the State of Hidalgo stand out those that are made in Tenango de Doria, known as “tenangos” for their combination of colors and for their representation of the flora and fauna of the place. The most common elements in embroidery represent religion, Patron celebrations, Day of the Dead, etc., but because they are carriers of symbolic languages that express the environment, life, myths and rites of its residents of Tenango de Doria.
All these symbols, drawings and representations in colorful threads, are a simple reminder of the existence of a culture that resists forgetting its roots and celebrations and appear in each piece to remind us of our roots. In this sense these embroideries are considered as cultural heritage of Mexico.
In order to protect these creations, various government organizations promoted the trademark registration of the “tenangos”, which began in 2012.
