Mexico’s cultural heritage is woven deep within the country’s fabric. After the Mexican Revolution, a new generation of artisans emerged blending native culture with Spanish influence. As a result, a vibrant national movement of the arts ignited that tells a much bigger story than a handmade bracelet. Every bracelet in our Mexico collection tells a story of agricultural, familial, political, and religious strength found in Mexican culture.
Meet some of our Mexican artisans
Ever since my first visit to Mexico as a child, I gravitated to all the colors and traditional folkloric designs. With every trip I’ve taken as an adult, I’ve been able to deepen my connection and understanding of Mexican culture. I’ve discovered the diversity that makes each region so special. The locals are friendly and welcoming, and not to mention—the delicious cuisine is to die for!
Every Corazón bracelet tells a story of agricultural, familial, political, and religious strength inspired by Mexican culture. It’s an honor to introduce you to our special artisan partners.
Meet our Corazon bracelets
These hand-crafted, hand-painted wooden bracelets hail from the scenic peaks of Oaxaca, Mexico (and come with a sweet surprise!) Edgar Fabian Ortega and cousins Citlali and Vero run a third-generation workshop called “Una Inspiración de mi Vida” (inspiration of my life) in San Martín, Tilcajete. This historic home of the Alebrije artisans are known for fantastical figures and dream-like designs that take some influence from Zapateco culture (think of the animals in Coco!)
