Meet the Artisans
The Artisana Collection represents work from multiple artists in the famous Taxco region of Mexico, best known for it’s silver jewelry. The artisans continue to produce traditional jewelry much like their ancestors. The groups who produce jewelry in this collection have formed cooperatives to pool together their talent and resources – the result has been a positive impact for the individual artisans and a bigger impact on the community.
