We are madeinmexi.co (think Made in Mexico with a dot before the co 🤓)
So how did this all get started?
During my university summer break in 2015, I volunteered in Oaxaca, Mexico as an English teacher. I instantly fell in love with the rich colours, vibrant people and the exotic feel of this magical country.
I discovered that Mexico has a proud market culture with virtually every city and town offering at least one artisan market.
So what makes Mexican artisanal products so special?
The quality craftsmanship, bold colours and value for money. In an age where we live in globalised societies, surrounded by mass produced products and a growing trend for disposable fashion, the need for sustainability and authenticity is ever greater.
The indigenous communities of Mexico have spent generations perfecting their craft and I want the world to see this!
With this in mind madeinmexi.co was born.
Vision Statement: Mexico is not just a holiday destination. It’s a collective of many indigenous communities with a history and culture that spans millennia.
Mission Statement: To spread awareness of the beautiful crafts and wares that the Mexican artisan communities produce.
With the positive input from our friends in Mexico, we are your local Mexican Artisan Market!
