Purchase Mexican and Latin American folk art online
If you aren’t in Portland, or don’t have time to visit us in person, you can order directly from our online shop (link to store). If you are looking for something specific, please contact us. There are many, many items that haven’t made it to our online store yet. We are always happy to send photos and information to help you find your own personal work of art.
We specialize in Huichol Indian beaded art and jewelry from Mexico. Read more about the special source of this beaded art where beads, carvings and beeswax are used to create wonderful animal figures, prayer bowls, masks, jewelry and crosses. Our group of artists use beads that are much smaller than are usually used in Huichol art, giving it much more detail. We also carry exquisite yarn art in which the artist brings visions to life using yarn and beeswax on a wood frame.
