By Mexican foundation Ensamble Artesano, crafted by women artisans in Tlanipatla, Guerrero and designed by Mexican design brand M.A.
The candle holder is inspired by the craftsmanship of wood carving in Guerrero. Born from the collaboration with 3 artisans, who currently are the only family in the community that is dedicated to wood carving. Mauro López Sandoval, father of Antonio and Mauro López Bautista, was the one who decided to learn the technique in order to inherit it to his children.
Ensamble Artesano is a non-profit platform, designed as a space for exchange and collaboration to combat the economic uncertainty for artisans in Mexico precipitated by the pandemic. Today, it supports more than three thousand artisans across 22 states in Mexico, in partnership with 83 organizations. It has evolved into an important hub, forging collaborative networks to strengthen the craft sector.
Their objective, in addition to preserving and celebrating artisan creation as well as promoting innovation in traditional design, is to give recognition and reinforce the maintenance of formal and fair value chains that have created horizontal work links and that guarantee a source of income for indigenous and rural communities in Mexico.
