After 17 years of being immersed in the Mexican culture through marriage, family, friends,
work experiences and a lot of stays in Mexico … it think it's time to unveil this underexposed
side of Mexico. No stories about mariachi, telenovelas, men with moustaches, tacos,
hammocks and all-inclusive beach resorts. But stories about the creative industry in Mexico.

Mexico City is the New York of Latin America. The contemporary architecture in combination with the intensive
sun & light and the versatile landscapes throughout the country keep on fascinating me.

There is coming up a huge generation of driven designers translating a deep respect for authentic materials &
techniques into contemporary design objects. These young entrepreneurs are often socially engaged, proud of
their rich traditions and happy to create long term and ethical partnerships with local artisans.
