Overview

Arte de Origen is a company that produces and designs unique objects inspired on images from different Mexican and Latin- American cultures.We embody such images in; carpets, boxes, furniture, mirrors and sculptures, made integrally by hand. We mainly use, paper, fabrics, metal, paints, patinas and lacquer, thus insuring unique objects, finished with wax and pigments.We use the collagetechnique to perform our objects. This are: small pieces of paper cut by hand to create the layout of each object and leave the imprint of the hand made. In this sense, every object is unique and has been made based on this principal.In some pieces the technique is developed on objects with wooden base and in the case of the tapestries they are made on basis of Kraft paper. Painting is not used, but rather is work with the original colors of the paper. In all cases the objects are finished with the patinas wax technique.Enjoy the world of Arte de Origen.

I went looking for my favorite Mexican art shop and it was gone. I was disappointed as I love to pick up a piece of handmade art as a reminder of our annual trip to Cabo. Maybe next year.

Wish I could shop here without having to figure out how to take the items home. Artists staff the store themselves. If you love Mexican art style, you will love this store.

Never got the item I bought, and no responses from the owner (I think) Rodrigo to emails. No recourse since going back to Mexico isnt in the cards.
