Mexico

Mexico has a strong artistic heritage so it is natural that kites would be found throughout the country, even though basic kite making materials are often difficult to obtain. Basic diamond-shaped, flat kites were the typical toy kite of the 20th century, but Eastern coastal regions are influenced by Caribbean designs.

There has been a revival of interest in kites by fine artists through the efforts of Francisco Toledo, who has sponsored kite exhibitions, workshops, and festivals.
