Mexico City-based ARTISAN CRAFT COMPANY began as a small co-operative of designers, educators, craftsman, travelers and dreamers. Through those early adventures, driven by a curiosity in vernacular landscapes, ACC was placed in contact with many traditional agrarian and art and craft communities. Humbled and inspired by the stories of the artisans and amazed by the quality and artistry of their products, the Artisan Craft Company was born.
Merging contemporary training with the traditional skills of local artisans, the Artisan Craft Company is a showcase for the fruits of their dedicated work and creative talents, and a gateway in which they can access buoyant fair-trade consumer markets with confidence. ACC’s aim is not only to protect and preserve the opportunities of these artisans, but also to help reinvigorate traditional communities and sustainable working practices, as well as popularizing the value of traditional skills, knowledge and craft.
