Orinoco Spoons – Set of 2
Mexican culture is known for passing down their traditions from generation to generation. At the Agua y Monte Artisan Cooperative in Pajapan, the artisans have been taught the traditional ways of woodworking over hundreds of years. They utilize locally sourced cocuite wood from their village in Los Tuxtlas Biosphere Reserve, where they carve intricate pieces like these stunning natural Orinoco Spoons (set of 2). Each set is tied with a strap of smooth Mexican leather and is perfect for scooping coffee! We are excited to work with these artisans through our partnership at Ayres Studio.

La Mesa Tea Towels – Set of 2
These simple yet stunning tea towels each come with a story. Every single towel is handmade by our beloved artisan partner Rodrigo and his family through a very intricate weaving process—pedal loom weaving. Pedal loom weaving is a technique that dates back to the 1500s. It’s a traditional method that the Spaniards introduced to the Zapotec people after their conquest. Still to this day, the village of Mitla uses this centuries old technique to provide a livelihood for families by creating beautiful textiles for the home

Tzalam Coasters – Set of 4
In a place like Mexico, so much of the culture is deeply rooted in nature and honoring the earth. These inherent values are expressed artistically through our Tulum coasters, designed by Ayres Studio. Each coaster (set of 4) is handcrafted into a geometric shape from pieces of native Tzalam wood. The wood used is collected from the “waste” of fallen branches or trees damaged by storms, making each piece sustainable at its core to honor mother nature.
