On March 19th, we celebrate the work of 12 million Mexican art masters who make a living from their fantastic creations. The artisans are the main promoters of traditional art. In their works they capture values and rites that are inherited and leave an invaluable heritage through the generations. In addition to being the day of the artesano, the entire month of March is considered a tribute to women and men of the artisan community who provide for their homes. Follow along to commemorate with us the talent from all the artisans across Mexico.
This month we celebrate International Women’s Month, and we highlight the resilience, strength, wisdom, and beauty of women all over the world.
To continue the celebration throughout the year, we are introducing a monthly Women We Admire series that will feature a special woman in our community. Someone we admire, someone that uplifts other women and whose positivity and encouragement has kept us going. It’s a reminder to never forget who might be inspired by your journey, your successes, your perseverance or just by simply being you.
