Craftswomen from San Luis Amatlán are celebrated for the quality of their work and the ability of their goods to transcend space and time. New ideas have emerged and together with the craftswomen, we started a creative dialogue in order to create new handmade lampshades. If their palm leaf baskets are mainly seen as functional elements, the idea of making a lamp out of a basket has been well perceive. Each one of them has responded to the challenge with an impressive range of work, combining technical expertise and imaginative power, exploring new forms and styles. Our « luminarias » reflect the identity and handcraft technique of each craftswoman.
