Part of Vision y Tradicion, the project is an initiative of Design Week Mexico that aims to generate a link between the work of designers and artisans in Mexico.
Says Escalona, “This year, together with Taller Maya, a diverse group of designers from Mexico and Cuba worked with communities throughout the state of Yucatan to generate a catalog of products that, taking into account the skills of the artisan and the market, generates sustainable income for these communities.”
Developed during a 4-day stay to understand the processes, materials and context, Escalona developed Toh to expand the Xcanchakan artisans product possibilities and market the end result with Taller Maya’s support.
