The art of hand-weaving is an ancient technique that has been kept alive from generation to generation, but which unfortunately has been lost over the years.
To preserve this cultural heritage for future generations, we strive to inform the world of the processes that are carried out in the production of our products. To create awareness in humanity about the value, effort and dedication of what is made by hand.
That is why we want you to meet some of our artisans who day by day leave a piece of their legacy and a piece of their heart in each of the hats they weave.
We create objects with soul and history.
ALFONSO is a 94-year-old artisan who lives in Becal, Campeche. A small town in southeastern México. The door of his house is always open and he loves receiving visits and talking while he spends time weaving his hats. One of the most curious things about ALFONSO is that he has 6 toes instead of 5 in his right foot, something that ALFONSO proudly boasts to anyone he meets.
86 years of his life weaving, his love for his work and his charisma make ALFONSO a very dear and well-know person in his town.
MARIA is a 73-year-old artisan who lives with her entire family in Becal, Campeche. She is dedicated to helping people with her healing massages and loves taking care of her grandchildren. MARIA, like many other artisans, made her cave in the backyard of her house, a place where she weaves hats in her spare time.
MARIA has a plant in the backyard of her house called “Achiote” which she uses to naturally dye her hats. This reduces damage to the environment and gives hats a unique color above the rest.
LAZARO is a 73-year-old artisan who lives in Becal, Campeche. A small town in the southeastern México with his entire family. He learned to weave hats thanks to his wife “MARIA CANDELARIA” 40 years ago. He is currently a taxi driver but loves to weave hats in his free time. Years have made him an excellent and fast weaver. LAZARO can finish a hat that normally takes 3 days in less than 1 day.
ALFONSO, MARIA AND LAZARO are grateful to people that value their work and their handmade products.
