By Mexican foundation Ensamble Artesano, crafted by artisan women in San Bartolo Coyotepec, Oaxaca and designed in collaboration with Mexican design brand Onora.
Weto decorative bowls honor the tradition of clay molcajetes. Its interior rough finish helped to grind different ingredients in food preparation. The Zapotec word Weto means to grind. The color of barro negro black clay is due to the specific properties of the clay from this region and the firing process.
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.
