Coming over the next several years:
Watch for new videos of artisans working as we re-live the first few years of our travels through Mexico in search of  Mexican Folk Art.  In the next several years, we will be visiting all of our old artisans to capture their stories on video and in words.  We’ll be focusing on how their lives have changed over the last 15 years and how their work is changing.   Artisans such as the Aguilar families of Oaxaca, the Jimenez families in Arrazola, the Castillo families of Izucar plus papel amate artisans, tin workers of both Oaxaca and San Miguel de Allende and more.  Watch for new merchandise from all of these artisans over the next year.

We’ll update you with the stories here, as we travel throughout Mexico.
