Our “alebrije” artisans create some of Mexico’s finest decorated wooden figures (alebrijes) from copal wood they harvest, and replenish.
Artisans we feature, Saul and Alma Aragón,
Jesus Sosa, and occasionally Jacobo and Maria Angeles, are all celebrated Zapotec artists and ecological pioneers from Oaxaca, Mexico.
Many have won worldwide recognition for their leadership in the sustainable harvesting of copal trees, the traditional Oaxacan source of wood for carving.
