About The Artisans
With a mission to preserve native traditions from generations before them, artisans of Art Camp (Artesanas Campesinas) continue the craft of silver and stone jewelry. The women-owned cooperative in Tecalpulco, Mexico, creates opportunities for the women artisans to provide for their families, with many choosing to work from home so they can be with their families.
Resiliency, hard work and innovation are hallmarks of women in the co-op. These qualities helped them survive a market collapse in the 1990s by working to expand their production methods, designs and customer base while maintaining the quality of their jewelry.
Each carefully crafted piece represents the fine tradition of Mexican jewelry and the resolve of the artesanas campesinos of Tecalpulco.
