Teófila Orozco has been embroidering since they were very young. Her specialty is colorful hand embroidery work on manta (a traditional hand-woven cotton) or other cotton cloth. Her unique, whimsical, and original designs tell of life in their lakeside communities: farming, fishing, fiestas, marriages, and other events. The rich imaginations of the artists enliven their charming tapestries.

Teófila is a very prolific worker and produces clothing and embroidered items of such quality that she has won many prizes at concursos (judged shows). Here she is shown with a rebozo (shawl) that won first prize at one of the shows. A book has been written about her called "Bordados para ser Contados."
