Meet The Artisans



Following her Textile Design degree, Ana Sánchez wanted to create a brand that would promote traditional weaving techniques like the pedal loom on the production of slick designs for modern homes. Today, she works with artisans in Teotitlán del Valle, Oaxaca, to bring you meaningful products that encourage conscious consumption, eschewing mass production and supporting local fair trade.


A long-time lover of textiles traditions, Ana was able to expand her horizons while at University, and soon felt she wanted to play her own part in the preservation of ancestral cultural practices and artisanal techniques. Her passion for handmade processes means she is very collaborative in the work she does with the artisans in Oaxaca, designing and creating pieces whose fabric and weaves tell fascinating stories of ancient traditions.


Respectful of her Mexican heritage, she's however not scared of experimenting, approaching each product with an innovative attitude to patterns, textures, colors, and techniques, resulting in contemporary pieces that stand out for their design and aesthetics. Each design is methodically planned and executed with the utmost respect for the environment, as Tramarte only uses dyes from natural pigments such as grana cochinilla and indigo.
