Fabrica Maria is surrounded by the Atoyac river, on the edge of the old ranches, La Ladrillera y Moratilla. It runs along the present Mexico-Puebla highway, at the first entrance to Angelópolis, Kilometer 8 on the old road to Tlaxcala, along what is called the "Via Fabrica" (Fabric Route). This is so-called precisely because of the important number of textile factories that were founded on this old road, which in the old days only saw horse-drawn carriages along its charming way.
La Constancia Mexicana, the first textile enterprise in all of Latin America, was founded by Mr. Esteban de Antuñano, the person who established the important textile tradition in this region. It was the neighbor of La Constancia y La Maria, which stood on either side of the Mexico-Puebla highway. It seems like this old and robust structure, with its immense fireplaces and located at the entrance t o the City of Angels, is safeguarding the textile tradition of this region.
After the emergence of the first textile mills such as La Constancia, others followed to make use of the wealth of the Atoyac river.
Fabrica Maria was founded in 1896 to honor the patron saint of a small Spanish village, Santa Maria Auxiliadora. Thus, Fabrica Maria was baptized as "La Maria," and has been one of the most traditional sources of work in the Mexican textile industry.
As with many other old constructions, there exist a range of spooky legends associated with La Maria, which speak of buried treasures and even ghosts, spirits and reincarnations. AII of this lends to the factory an atmosphere of magic and mysticism, which pervades its workers and is contagious to those who visit it.
La Maria, which at that time was on the outskirts of the city of Puebla, has an architecture characteristic of the haciendas of the era of the Porfiriato, and in the interior of this precious structure, a story has been created composed of the efforts of a great number of Mexican workers, who have left their mark by producing, throughout, cloth of the highest quality, proudly manufactured in Mexico.
