Imagine...

... a box with no apparent way to open it, yet if you know the secret – you can. One box might take 4 steps, another 54. Now imagine a store with not a couple, a few, or even a dozen – but nearly 100 of these amazing Japanese puzzle boxes.

... a carved wooden jaguar head decorated with over 50,000 beads, each individually placed, forming intricate patterns. An art form perfected by the Huichol Indians of Mexico.

... a tiny basket, so tightly woven that they say it can hold water. Such are the baskets of the Wounaan Indians of Panama. 

... a sculpture that is half giraffe, half gazelle and just so happens to be purple and orange. This is the whimsical work known as Alebrijes to the people of Oaxaca, Mexico. 

... a gold lacquer vase that took a master craftsman over a month to complete. Or a jade sculpture that took 3 months. Or a tiny bottle with a portrait painted on the inside

Imagine these items and thousands more, each with a story, waiting to be discovered.

Gold Leaf Lacquer - is one of the finest crafts produced in China. It involves a 20 step process that converts normal objects of porcelain or wood into beautiful masterpieces. Each piece is hand painted and gilded with gold leaf, then finished with over 10 coats of lacquer, a process that can take up to a month to complete.

Shop our Wall Hangings from Peru and Mexico - You will also find tapestries depicting things such as flowers, birds, butterflies, and many other Andean cultural aspects.  All of the sheep wool is handspun, and then naturally dyed with native vegetable, mineral, and animal dye.
