Olinalá comes from two Nahuas Ollyn words from tlallyn which means place of tremors. To paint the tools that are used are feathers and spines, the fabric is pre-washed blanket and textile paint. The wood is linaloe that is cut by hand, and then put a varnish based on soils and natural oils such as chia and flaxseed and is decorated with natural stones extracted from the subsoil that are cooked and grounded to obtain a white powder and mix with different colors. It is polished and varnished leaving to dry for a fortnight and again the same process is done. Chia oil is mixed with soil making a paste that serves as glue. There are two pre-Hispanic design techniques: shelled scratching and brush painted. In total each box is made between 20 and 30 days.
