HOLA

The Artesanal (the Spanish word for artisanal) is a home decor and design studio based in San Francisco. We partner with artisans throughout Mexico to curate and produce contemporary, handcrafted homewares and accessories.

We have a deep appreciation and admiration for Mexico: the people, design, history, food, landscapes, and, of course, the incredible handcraft culture that is unlike any other country. We're excited to share our love of all things Mexico with you, which includes our curated collection of homewares from more than two dozen communities, large and small, spanning 12 Mexican states. View our collections by region here.

Founded in 2019, our mission is to showcase and support Mexican design and artisanal craftsmanship. Many of the craft techniques, rooted in decades or centuries of tradition and culture, are losing prominence or are in danger of disappearing from global competition of mass produced goods.  

HECHO EN MÉXICO

We take a hands-on approach by visiting and establishing dialogue with the artisan partners we work with. Traveling to communities across Mexico to meet these talented makers and their families is one of our greatest joys - and the favorite part of our job.

All products are individually handcrafted from sustainable, local, and natural materials with traditional craft techniques. Watching and learning the process of raw materials - such as clay, wool or leather - transformed into a beautiful and functional object, is truly enchanting.

Our direction collaboration with all the artists ensures fair and ethical payment and production practices. At times, we do purchase from design studios or established brands in Mexico - when doing so, it is noted in the product description.

MODERN DESIGN // CRAFT TRADITION

We love the intersection of contemporary design and traditional, culturally-important methods of production. We collaborate with Mexican artisans to curate and create our own collections, with an aesthetic inspired by earthy, natural tones and textures to be mixed and matched.

Our product line ranges from simple curation to full design. We handpick the products that we find and love - sometimes, just at a local market somewhere in Mexico. Often, we'll collaborate with the artist to tweak attributes of an already-existing product/design, such as the color, material or size. And, with increasing frequency, we are (in collaboration with the artisans) creating new products from scratch, starting with the conception of an idea and selection of material(s), colors, size and more.

SMALL BATCH PRODUCTION

All products are made by hand from traditional methods and with natural or recycled materials. No polluting factories, synthetic materials or mass production.

FAIR-TRADE SOURCED

We work directly with all artisan partners to ensure ethical and fair practices (and because we love it!). We pay their prices, always up front.
