Supporting Artisan Communities
These paper mâché products are hand-made by artisans in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico by a cooperative led by artist Pedro Hernandez (pictured). Paper mâché was used more than a hundred years ago to create Alebrijes, dreamlike creatures which combine animal shapes with colors, textures and incredible forms. Their family practices continue this tradition, which has origins rich in cultural significance.
We strive to ensure that techniques are credited, and the rich history is properly shared with everyone. Our partnerships with these autonomous Mexican businesses and artists are mutually beneficial and come with our commitment to their long-term growth, recognition, and cultural protection.
