Discover Ixteca

We are a platform where you can discover, share and hopefully purchase a beautiful selection of unique artisanal products coming from Mexico.
We work with artisans in remote Mexican villages as well as with renowned artists and designers from Mexico City, we are constantly looking for new potential suppliers and help them to adapt their ancestral techniques to modern trends. It is important for us that all our partners share the same social values and are dedicated to create exclusive pieces that you will, for sure adore! 

Our Vision & Objectives

The soul of Ixteca’s catalogue are the products themselves, we believe that every single product from our selection will bring something unique and qualitative to its purchaser.
On top of our product selection, we look closely at the history and practices of our partners making sure these processes create a positive social impact such as human rights, positive local economic impact and pro-environmental practices.
Most of our collaborations are small but long term, helping local communities to have a regular source of income which allows them to consider how to implement sustainable and environmental-friendly practices in the long term.
Ixteca collaborates with other brands, distributors and associations who share the same business principles. 
We hope that our product selection will show you the richness of the Mexican culture and the quality of its art crafts, giving you a positive image of Mexico.
Every purchase you make helps us to continue our project and supports long term solutions for our suppliers.

The origin

Born and raised in Mexico, I was always passionate about the pre-Hispanic culture and concerned about the preservation of its traditions. Now living in Europe with my Parisian husband, I often receive nice comments about the traditional clothes and accessories I wear and decoration pieces I have at home. From there, we decided to promote my country’s culture through its art crafts. Ixteca was born from the need to adapt Mexican products to European trends and to secure the best possible quality, and with this, spread a positive image of Mexico.
