At Memah we have lived in the Oaxacan homes (or Casas Oaxacanas) of our makers. We have worked alongside each artisan in order to fully understand, admire and respect the craft and detail that goes into each piece.
Every Memah product is handmade by our talented artists using time-honoured skills that trace back to the rich and ancient Zapotec culture. Each bag is a labour of love and takes over four days to make.
Every Memah product brings the traditional craft from these two small villages to the world and empowers the makers in their own enterprise. Whilst the techniques used are traditional our artisans enjoy experimenting with modern and different colour tones and designs to bring you something unique.
We are so proud of the talents behind our products – the makers who weave by hand with heart. It is these faces that give each piece its individual charm.
