MATERIA highlights objects that interpret tradition in new ways, from designers and artisans throughout Mexico who are re-imagining handmade techniques for today.

We champion the slowly crafted and perfectly imperfect, favoring simple, sculptural forms and timeless, locally derived materials. Our wabi-sabi style speaks to California and MATERIA’S Los Angeles studio, where a rich Mexican visual culture blends seamlessly with pared back ideals for living.

MATERIA translates as "area of study,” honoring the history, skills and stories behind each piece. Our selection of market, designer and vintage pieces supports ethical supply chains, indigenous craft and, whenever possible, the re-purpose and reuse of resources and goods.
