OUR HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY
We are a Mexican design brand formed by artisans from the Yucatan Peninsula and a creative team committed to promoting the talent and potential of the Mayan communities. Together we create pieces with history and great cultural value.
The Taller Maya collections represent the presence and vitality of the Mayan people, their worldview and their integration with a dynamic present. Using natural materials that extracted with sustainable processes of minimal environmental impact.
Since its inception, Taller Maya has been committed to fair trade and access to fair labor and trade conditions, as an official member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).
Taller Maya was born as a collective brand to generate access to the global market of artisans of the Yucatan Peninsula, in order to bring down poverty, always based on their talent, creativity and self-management.
Today, Taller Maya artisans are part of a competitive market in which as owners of their microenterprises, they grow and innovate with their own initiatives which rescue the art handcrafting with quality and business vision. We weave paths of success towards new forms of collaboration and innovative proposals in which the wisdom of mayan culture and contemporary design are linked in unique concepts. This towards an evolution in responsible consumption and an appreciation of handmade pieces with great background stories.
Taller Maya rescues distinctive techniques and materials from the Yucatan Peninsula.
The essence of the Mayan world and its artisan heritage.
Design as a link between ancestral tradition, conscious consumption and current trends.
