MATERIA: MEXICAN WABI-SABI
MATERIA highlights objects that interpret tradition in new ways, from designers and artisans throughout Mexico who are re-imagining handmade techniques for today.
It’s Mexican wabi-sabi style: slowly crafted and perfectly imperfect, favoring simple, sculptural forms and timeless, locally derived materials. The aesthetic speaks to California our Los Angeles-based studio, where a rich Mexican visual culture blends seamlessly with pared back ideals for living.
MATERIA translates as "area of study," referencing the history, skill and stories behind each piece. We offer a carefully curated collection of market, designer and vintage finds with the goal of supporting indigenous craft, ethical supply chains and, whenever possible, the re-purpose and reuse of resources and goods.
Our studio offers sourcing and bespoke product design, as well as editorial and content creation. For collaborations and inquiries, please drop us a line.
