Experience the flavour of Mexican craftsmanship for the first time in India! The legacy of contemporary Mexican art and antique folks offering comes to India giving art lovers a unique product range to choose from.

Inaugurated by the Ambassador of Mexico in India, His Excellency Mr. Rogelio Granguillhome Morfin, the Mexican arts & crafts collection is being showcased at Hansiba, the flagship brand of Sewa Trade Facilitation Center (STFC).

The array of folk art being displayed at Hansiba has been passed down through generations in Mexico. All items are handmade by Mexican artisans and have been selected for their beauty and uniqueness, and as well exemplary representations of the Mexican culture.

The items like brass pottery, flowerpots, trays, glasses, jewelry boxes and household products such as baskets are handmade using finest quality Natural Fibers, Brass, Ceramic, and Mexican Lacquer.

Ms. Reema Nanavaty, Chairperson, STFC, said “There is similarity between Mexican crafts and culture and Indian crafts and culture. 'Hansiba' has been studying and understanding this similarity for more than 5 years now.

We now are taking a concrete step by developing market linkages between Mexican and Indian crafts through 'Hansiba' – thereby ensuring livelihood security to artisans.”

The exquisite craft selection has been made using natural dyes in shades of red, green, brown and yellow. The vast traditional Mexican work includes decorative and finishing techniques like Burnishing, where the piece is rubbed with a stone in order to obtain a smooth and shinny surface, Slips, obtained by mixing clay with minerals and water; Incised, where a sharp tool is used to “scratch” the design in to the clay.

The use of mythological figures, such as animals and gods to decorate these crafts with natural dyes, grants these masterpieces grate artistic wealth.

His Excellency, Mr. Rogelio Granguillhome Morfin, said “In terms of art and craft, India and Mexico have some common features and it is a good opportunity for people living here to discover the Mexican crafts.”

In addition to decorative objects, Hansiba will also be showcasing Mexican stoles and shawls at its boutique. The materials used include silk and wool, as well as brown, green and white cotton which is made entirely by hand.
