Handcrafted in Mexico

From marblewares to palm weaves, the Mexican crafts are uniquely distinct to their artisan origins. The materials used in the each craftsmanship are sourced locally, and the pieces designed and specifications customised in collaboration with our Mexican artisan partners.

Women Weavers of Oaxaca

This incredible group of women ranges from ages 28 to 94!

Like a family, each woman works alongside one another, weaving on the group's traditional backstrap looms.

Most have learnt their craft from the other women in their families, purchasing the cotton from the nearby Puebla and dying it themselves before starting the weaving process together.

Each cotton clutch piece takes approximately 4 hours to weave, with each artisan sharing a bit of their legacy in every bag.

Jipijapa Weavers in Oaxaca

This collective of artisans are based in Southeastern Mexico and are indigenous Mayan. For all in this group, Spanish is their second language.

They grow and cultivate their own monocot plants – known as jipijapa palm. The plants were purchased through a government assistance program and belong to the group.

Each piece purchased supports fair pay to local Mexican women artisans, as well as respect for traditional processes.

Pottery Artisans

This family of artisans have been working with pottery for generations.

Highly skilled in the art of pottery production, they continuously strive to develop new processes – a creative evolution that spans an enormous body of work, from large-scale sculptures to stunning tableware. In addition to creating these pieces by hand, the family also gathers organic plants and minerals to use in their pieces, which they pit fire in the three handmade kilns that they built on their property.

Maguey Farmers

Our Maguey Pieces are handcrafted by a family of artisans in Central Mexico, using the traditional processes that are decades old.

The agave plant maguey is first harvested, with its fibers stripped by hand, before being washed in water and then dried in the sun. They are later brushed straight over a giant biznaga cactus, before being made into sponges through intricate crochet work.

Artisan Antonio

Antonio learnt his craft from his parents at the age of 7.

He now honours his late parents by weaving palm, feeling closer to them in the process. His dream is to keep this tradition alive, and offer a good life to his wife and children.

Antonio harvests the palm needed for each bag together with his family, and then weaves on his own for 3 to 4 days to create each exquisitely fine-crafted palm bag.

Stonemason Artisans

This family of artisans have been working with stone for over three generations.

While they make smaller custom homewares for our collection, their specialty has traditionally been larger sculptural works, along with sinks and counters for homes. This particular pink marble is from the state of Puebla, but they also source their materials throughout Mexico for a range of textures, hues and styles.
