txt.ure, a cooperative based in Mexico City, revives lost fragments and narratives of Mexican design history. And they do this with an emphasis on craftsmanship and preservation of historical techniques. Their goal is to bring these almost-forgotten Mexican classics to the attention of contemporary design space, and for users around the world to appreciate Mexican craftsmanship and history.
txt.ure is passionate about empowering local communities and craftsmen through contemporary design methods. These are our kind of people - preserving heritage and history while supporting indigenous crafts by opening up markets and training new apprentices.
With the help of Kickstarter, and 150 people in 15 countries, txt.ure has established a workshop dedicated to producing and preserving ancient Mexican crafts. Apprentices will learn techniques and skills from master artisans who will pass their ancestral knowledge to the next generation. Through their efforts, txt.ure ensures that ancestral knowledge and historical craftsmanship in Mexico lives on through modern design.
