When you shop Artes de Mexico there’s so much to see and learn about; you could literally spend hours here. Folk art is at the root of Mexican culture and some of these various crafts are centuries old, dating back to pre-Columbian times. Most owe their survival to families, who have handed down their skills to their children and grandchildren. A particular craft is normally associated with one family, in a specific region, and usually made from indigenous materials. Some items are created for the delight and entertainment of family members, others are utilitarian and sold at Mexican markets, or have value beyond the region and are sold for export. Most families depend on the sales of their crafts for their livelihood.
