The work from this village, in Mexico, is so well known that several belts from Colotlán are exhibited in the renowned Prado Museum in Madrid. Piteado is worked only on leather. In Colotlán, Armando Gaeta Loera is one of the acknowledged maestros of piteado. Maestro Gaeta begins to make tiny holes in the leather with an awl. He then begins, little by little, to embroider with the pita thread.
