description

“Cesta” is a collaborative project between Swiss-Spanish designer Francisco Torres and the Tlama Collective, with the objective of connecting the Mexican craftwork tradition with current production methods. Cesta seeks to bind the qualities of knit palm leaf with the everyday needs of a modern society. The designers worked with the family of artisans Sabino López, who are based in the community of Tlamacazapa, Guerrero, in order to achieve the creation of “Cesta”. Further on, Ediciones Jalapa gallery produced a limited edition of pieces of the collection.
