MATERIA: MEXICAN WABI SABI
MATERIA highlights products that interpret tradition in new ways, from designers and makers throughout Mexico who are re-imagining artisanal techniques for today's lifestyle. Favoring modernism's simplicity of style, we focus instead on sculptural forms, timeless materials and unique methods of creation.
Imperfect and ephemeral, our objects are handmade by communities that struggle to exist, produced according to processes at risk of being lost. Our name translates as "area of study," speaking to the history, skill and stories behind each piece.
MATERIA supports ethical supply chains and, whenever possible, the re-purpose and reuse of resources and goods. Mexican brands featured include Angela Damman, Caralarga, Colorindio, David Pompa, Lagos del Mundo, Onora Casa, Mexchic and Roseann Hall. In addition, we curate a selection of vintage and market finds.
We offer sourcing, wholesale and bespoke product design, as well as editorial and content creation. For inquiries, drop us a line. We'd love to hear from you.
MATERIA is based in Los Angeles.
