Michoacan Workshop

The Workshop of Martha, is an amazing story that became reality in the state of Mexico, Michoacan. The revival of a foot loom workshop with merino sheeps, brought from Australia for milk production of a factory closeby. A completely amazing adventure worthwhile integrating in our group of artisans.


During our first encounter with this talented artisan cooperative, we were immediately inspired by their weaving philosophy–to represent the beauty of nature. It is a simple concept, but their execution of this idea is full of passion and integrity. Any color that's not native to Michoacan natural landscapes is off-limits. Strata of reds, oranges, and browns are reminiscent of dusty mountains and deep blues of the Pacific Ocean hugging Mexico coastline.
