ABOUT M.A.

1 FOUNDER + 5 EMPLOYEES + 15 ARTISANS

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

Our techniques

clay

The clay vases are burned with the traditional open fire method in Oaxaca and painted by hand by Melissa Àvila in their design studio in Mexico City. All pieces are one of a kind.

Weaving

Each rug & pillow case and rug are made on traditional pedal looms from 100% organic wool from local sheep that are loved and respected. Until one of M.A's pieces reaches you the following steps are undertaken: wool gathering, washing, carding, hand spinning, dyeing, weaving, cleaning, brushing + sewing.
