/ OUR STORY
Founded by a young Mexican jewelry designer with one purpose in mind: sharing to the world the rich culture of Mexico and it's beautiful handmade art, María Calavera features a thoughtfully designed selection of everyday wearable art.
What started being the founder's own jewelry line project, quickly transformed into a way to also showcase the one of a kind handbags that she learned to craft during a long trip to Oaxaca city, a trip that she started with a complete different purpose, to study new jewelry techniques. Not shortly after relocating to the U.S. this idea evolved into one mission: Create a platform for high quality Mexican contemporary handcraft designs with each piece reflecting the love for the unique and the extraordinary.
Our motivation is to share the beautiful cultural diversity of Mexico while supporting the local economy, promoting the fair trade, the greatness of interculturality and the gorgeous Mexican folklore.
We are completely grateful with each and everyone of the talented women and men artisans and artists that have ever collaborated to make María Calavera a reality, while we are still a few, our love for our roots and respect of traditions makes us create wonders.
