MADE IN MEXICO WITH LOVE
Our paper mâché products are hand-made by artisans in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, by a cooperative led by artist Pedro Hernández. Pedro started his paper mâché workshop 37 years ago. 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.
We take pride and joy in honoring the culture and people we are so fortunate to know. As we continue to build these relationships, we advocate for cultural preservation and further our commitment to meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships with artist communities. Our partnerships with these independent Mexican businesses and artists include prioritizing their long-term growth, recognizing their traditions, and contributing to their cultural protection.
