Arte de Origen is a company that produces and designs unique objects inspired on images from different Mexican and Latin- American cultures.We embody such images in; carpets, boxes, furniture, mirrors and sculptures, made integrally by hand. We mainly use, paper, fabrics, metal, paints, patinas and lacquer, thus insuring unique objects, finished with wax and pigments.We use the collagetechnique to perform our objects. This are: small pieces of paper cut by hand to create the layout of each object and leave the imprint of the hand made. In this sense, every object is unique and has been made based on this principal.In some pieces the technique is developed on objects with wooden base and in the case of the tapestries they are made on basis of Kraft paper. Painting is not used, but rather is work with the original colors of the paper. In all cases the objects are finished with the patinas wax technique.Enjoy the world of Arte de Origen.

Before departing on the cruise, we checked Arte de Origen's web... More

Prices were just a bit high for... More

The unique, Mexican made, cultural art pieces displayed in the shop window were mesmerizing. I particularly liked the handmade lacquered boxes of paper collages, flecked... More

I've been vacationing in Cozumel for over 10 years and enjoy looking for gifts that are uniquely from Mexico. During this last trip I discovered Arte de Origen and was pleasantly surprised to see so many beautiful hand-crafted items that are truly unique and can't be found in any of the typical tourist stores on the island.
