ESTRELLA CHICA 3D
Trim your tree with the intricate work of the Hojalateria tin artisans this holiday! Tin craftmanship was introduced by the Spanish settlers long ago. Oaxaca, Mexico remains a hub for tin artisans today. Here, the tin workshops are essentially family heirlooms, passed down through generations. Each ornament is handcrafted by Hojalateria craftsmen paid well above market price. All net profit is poured back into the indigenous communities of Mexico.
Mexico’s history is a crossroad between the cultures of Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia. Modern Mexican art is utilitarian at the core, but detailed in beautiful patterns and colors that are rooted in folk art traditions from the indigenous and Spanish eras. We showcase beautiful, hand-crated products for everyday use like shoulder bags and cell phone cases.
