We are a collaborative platform made up of organizations and projects whose meeting point is creative, local and responsible design and production. We believe that design is a bridge that can strengthen communities, find solutions and link innovation with social and economic entrepreneurship.

Haciendas del Mundo Maya Foundation, Maya Workshop, Mexico Creative Territory, Design Week Mexico and Caralarga we joined forces to create a space for exchange and collaboration with communities of artisans who preserve the cultural heritage of our country, and who are currently seriously affected by social isolation measures.

We believe that the context of uncertainty in which we are immersed must be faced with proposals that bet on collaboration, solidarity and the maintenance of work networks that guarantee access to income for those most vulnerable families and communities.
What do we do?
Ensamble Artesano is an initiative that seeks to face the uncertainty triggered by this health contingency through collaboration, innovation and the celebration of artisan techniques that survive thanks to the communities that work them.
We seek to promote craft creation and recognition of the value of this work through collaborative and horizontal ties, in order to guarantee income to communities that are currently facing the consequences of social distancing in recent months.
In order to maintain the formal value chains that already exist and that have served as a source of income for a vulnerable population sector, we seek to support formally established groups of artisans. During a period of three months, the most critical to face the contingency, we will make requests for design pieces and crafts to micro-companies that work with representative techniques of the ancestral knowledge of the peoples of our country.
