  • Albaricoque

    The brainchild of architect and designer Karina Herrera, Albaricoque was born in Michoacán from a passion for innovative Mexican design and a will to offer a piece of hand-woven Mexico in your space. Products are handwoven with chuspata, a reed growing near Lake Pátzcuaro and harvested by the artisans of Ihuatzio. With a complex process of desiccation and rehydration, the artisans prepare the fibers to weave baskets, lamps, and furniture with their magical hands.
