Design inspired by Mexican cacti. Since pre-Hispanic times, the attributes and benefits of these plants were used. The biznaga and the maguey were used for religious rituals, food, medicine, textile fibers, paper and soap. The nopal was considered sacred, since the roots connected to the underworld and the prickly pears, sacred hearts, to heaven, as well as being one of the elements that marked the end of the Aztec pilgrimage. Today some species are in danger of extinction due to the excessive looting of their plants and seeds outside their natural habitat.
