This face mask project is a tribute to 10 artisan makers of traditional masks in five different states: Michoacan, Colima, Oaxaca, Chiapas, and Guerrero.
Carla Fernández (Artist-in-Residence, 2013) is a Mexico City-based fashion label inspired by the geometrics and textile richness of Mexico. The brand has gained international acclaim for their approach to preserving the rich cultural heritage of Mexico’s indigenous communities and transforming it into beautiful clothing, textiles and housewares. Their contemporary take on handcrafted methods is proving ethical fashion can be striking, avant-garde and forward-looking.
This project by Carla Fernandez supports the artisans of each mask as well as the 175 collaborative artisans in the brand.Designed by Santos & Claudio Najera
