M.A is a project that combines artistic creations with artisanal methods. Based in Mexico City but with production seasons in different communities of Mexico, it is inspired by traditions, the autochthonous, native beliefs and local knowledge. M.A counts with a team of 20 with artisans from Oaxaca, Mexico and a design team in Mexico City, which is led by Melissa Ávila, a multidisciplinary artist from Tijuana.

Melissa states, that M.A arose “from a desire to combine (her) artistic production with traditional artisanal techniques. (She is) specifically interested in establishing relationships that expand and activate creative fields and work methods based on tradition, local knowledge, and the intersection of personal and collaborative work.”

M.A creates unique pieces that are handmade alongside artisans who specialise in different ancestral processes with the aim to help to preserve craftsmanship and create both opportunity and income using fair and horizontal manufacturing practices . M.A also trains new artisans in order to share and strengthen local practices and knowledge.

M.A works exclusively with natural materials such as red clay and wool to produce interior design objects which are each handmade and unique. 

M.A is aiming at providing fixed term employment for all 20 artisans the brand works with to guarantee them a stable income.

With every purchase of a ceramic object or wool carpet you not only support the growth of the brand but WLP also directly contributes its profits to improving access to clean water and health services.
