Meet The Artisans



Sisters Maria Andrea and Viviane created Albana following an idea they’d had for years to develop a brand that would promote social, environmental, and cultural consciousness in their native Mexico. Their work strives to return to a more pure, original way of living and to capture the very essence of being human through Mexican craftsmanship.


Their shared love for interior design inspired a focus on home decor. Today,  Albana has developed a range of products from lighting to carpets and ceramics, in collaboration with master artisans from the states of Jalisco, Michoacan, Estado de Mexico, and Querétaro.


Albana’s creations are designed and manufactured with the natural processes of the earth in mind, using sustainable materials that respect Mother Nature, while preserving ancestral crafts and traditions on the brink of extinction as a result of globalization and mass production.


Buying Albana’s creations means supporting local commerce and directly impacting the lives of the families of artisans they work with in more than 14 communities. Each piece is entirely handmade and therefore unique, carrying a precious historical, social, and cultural value.
