A length of M. C. Migel & Co., Inc. Mexixe series. Printed taffeta silk: "Mexixe Pussy Willow". Pure dye printed taffeta, design "Mexican Humming bird" in blue, purple, and red on "Montezuma Green." Printed dress silk with scattered design of stylized bird motifs in purple, orange, blue, red, and black on a yellow-green ground (avocado green). The Mexixe series was publicized as the first time an American textile company had utilized American design inspiration without looking to Paris first. The line was inspired by the prominence of Mexico and the US southwest in the news because of the US war against Pancho Villa.
M.C. Migel & Co., which in 1915 became H.R. Mallinson & Co., Inc., was known for innovation in silk design and silk manufacturing technology.
