"I met you in 2018 in a forum organized by a Mexican government entity promoting and advising people who want to export their work. I was intrigued by each technical detail that assists artisans. I immediately said yes.

"The ensuing months were ones of learning about every detail of each of our designs. We were accustomed to memorizing the techniques and working quickly and skillfully. But now, I am involved with each step of the crafting process for the ceramics we offer you exclusively.

"We had to significantly improve the quality of even the most minimal details, which led us to select a group of artisans who work specifically on our designs for you. One of their characteristics is the capacity for repetition and matching the colors for each set of dishes. To help them, we create patterns for our designs that let us work more fluidly.

"For all of us, you are our great ally. We love your attention to each step of the process in filling orders.

"Our greatest challenge so far has been to work under pressure and recreate the design patterns with exactitude. For most of us, inspiration is one of our best tools. But this has let us rediscover our enthusiasm for quality in all our work and, in this way, to grow.

"It's so exciting to see some of my tableware in the Nat Geo catalog! I love how you give each piece a lovely name based on the design. I believe you've done an incredible job of showing the essence of Mexico to the world.

"We want to continue working hand-in-hand with you and consolidate all the projects we have planned."

Original Artisan Story

"When I was a little boy, I began learning this lovely technique thanks to my father. I became familiar with the craft at an early age by helping him in his workshop and becoming involved with all the processes, from mixing the clay to decorating the pottery and packing it for shipment. He taught me all the secrets of the art, as his family had been ceramists all their lives.

"I found it challenging to remain focused on achieving my dream. Little by little, I began mastering the techniques with the help and enthusiasm of my family. Their passion and love are what keep me going every day.

"I love the colors of our materials. We always strive to maintain the tradition and the quality of our work, using only clay and ceramic glazes.

"You need a deep knowledge of the techniques and the processes, and also great control and discipline. I supervise everything we do in my workshop to make sure we maintain the standards our shoppers expect and also create an enthusiastic and pleasant environment.

"When we first established our workshop, it wasn't easy. It was hard to gain people's trust but, over time, I gained experience, respect and recognition. I've learned from my mistakes and today I have the opportunity to set my imagination free. I'm also able to help preserve our family tradition and — in a certain way — to transcend as a person.

"Today, my wife helps me with this beautiful project I love so much. She shares my inspiration to offer an aesthetic experience in every piece we craft.

"This motivates me to continue even though you hear many ceramists saying it's tough and there's no future here. I've resolved to keep my enthusiasm high and believe in my ability to create my own future. I'm betting on innovation to succeed, and I never forget that there's a whole world to conquer. In this way, I can be an example for my family."

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

HIPS

Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

NECK

SLEEVE

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

INSEAM

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.
