Choosing artisan means supporting a form of economic development that has deep meaning, one that originates from and is rooted in the uniqueness of people and place.

We feel honoured to work with brands that are committed to sustainable and ethical practices, and whose products are handmade and carry a real identity. Latin American designers don’t simply want to sell, they aspire to have a lasting and positive impact on their communities

Let Us Defy Your Expectations

Latin America spans over 19 million square kilometers! This means that although the crystalline beaches often associated with the region abound, its vast territories also hide deserts, snow-capped mountains, jungles and even glaciers. Latin America’s design and its expressions are as diverse as its natural resources. Some of the most creative minds in the region are diving into the folklore and artisanal traditions of their countries and developing locally produced collections that honour nature and reinterpret ancient crafts for the modern world.

This is Latin America

The story of these labels is the story of Latin America. The region’s culture and customs are present in the handwoven iraca palm designs from Colombia and in the elements of the Mexican charro tradition that are reinvented and incorporated into one-of-a-kind handbags. You’ll discover the region’s identity in Peru’s locally sourced and hand-spun alpaca wool fabrics, as well as in the able hands of Venezuela’s seamstresses and artisans… Craftsmanship has been central to Latin America for centuries — and it’s only gotten better with time.

The mission of most Latin American designers is to have a lasting and positive impact on their communities.

Centered on Nature

Because Latin America’s artisanal techniques have been passed down for generations, often from pre-Columbian times, they are mostly centered around the natural world. Local craftsmen use the sustainable resources native to the region, from seeds and palm leaves to natural fibers, to materialize the unique vision of designers who wish to honor their country’s traditions while elevating and modernizing them. Like the artisans they partner with, these creatives have a deeply rooted respect for the land and are constantly exploring ways to reduce their impact on the environment.
