Inspired by her experience working with artisans in Chiapas, Mexico, during her Textile Design University degree, Daniela Corzo decided to build her own brand to celebrate the rich artisanal heritage of Mexico and support local communities of artisans by providing them a fair income and excellent working conditions.
The main goal of Textitlán is to be a link between the makers’ communities, which are often situated in remote areas of various Mexican states, and paying customers, such as interior designers, hotels, and venues.
Daniela finds constant inspiration in the ingenuity and creativity demonstrated by her artisans. Together with them, she experiments with weaving techniques, materials, and product design - bringing the new and the old together. Today her brand, Textitlan, offers a range of beautiful and contemporary hand-woven items, such as hammocks with macramé details, swings, and towels.
With the use of sustainable materials like recycled cotton and strict adherence to fair trade principles, Textitlán wants to change the way people consume, making products that really affect the lives of people, both those who make them and those who buy them.
Let Daniela’s love for her craft and the artisans’ knowledge fill your heart and your homes… Welcome to Textitlán!
