Local father-daughter team creates custom, handmade embroidery pieces
Carla Valencia Design uses a technique passed down from generations
HOUSTON – From patchwork to purse straps, Carla Valencia Design is creating beautiful, custom, handmade embroidery pieces seen all over Houston.
Carla Valencia and her father, Carlos, complete each piece by hand.
Together, they're using a technique passed down from generations.
"I've always sewed alongside my dad, or at the house with his mother, my grandmother," said Carla.
Carlos' mother Martha taught Carla how to sew, and Carlos' father owned a denim factory in Guadalajara, Mexico.
There, he learned about fabrics and garment making, and learned how to operate a sewing machine.
