Artisans of Mexico City

This talented design collective based in Mexico City is the brainchild of an industrial designer from Yucatán, Mexico and a textile designer from Caracas, Venezuela. Giving true meaning to the word ‘collective’, they work with artisans from several states in Mexico – Puebla, Veracruz and Yucatán.

This collective is inspired by Mexico’s historical, natural, and primitive roots. They are founded on the philosophy that we all deserve special, timeless objects in our homes that tell a story through the weathered hands of the finest craftspeople. And they deliver on this promise – using the textures and intentions of these ancient materials and designs to create contemporary pieces with ancestral power.
