Central Mexico has a region of the country that is the heartland of Mexico’s Artist region. It is filled with centuries of History, Art and Culture. It is also filled with some of the most gifted artists in the world.
They have a long history of working with the local materials that have been available to create some of the greatest products in the world.
The region is a patchwork of farms, orchards and native families with generations of history. They are all small towns and villages neatly tucked into a mountain range that runs from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific. This is the heartland of immense talent and creativity of local artisans.
The styles are equally at home in Seattle as it is in Lafayette. They bridge a time back to an older, simpler way of life. It takes many hours, days, weeks and months to build each individual piece. When it is finished, they are proud. It is a labor of love.
Today, we source many of the materials for the products they build from old Haciendas, barns, warehouses and sheds to build furniture with a unique history. We must travel off the beaten path to find materials that offer unique hues, colors and character from their many years in their natural environment. Mother Nature is the only one who could create this kind of product with this kind of patina.
This sturdy, durable furniture is a brilliant slice of the rich old world history that makes up the centuries old history of the Americas. It is not 50 or 100 years of history. It is centuries of history. No two are alike and they all are individually created by one craftsman at a time. This furniture is solid and it requires care. It likes to be rubbed and caressed with fine furniture wax. The more you take care of it, the more generations it will last.
