Meet the Artisan
Artesanos de San Blas
Nestled amidst the enchanting streets of San Blas lies a hidden gem—a small, tight-knit artisan collective that embodies the spirit of tradition, resilience, and community.
Stepping into this quaint space is like entering a world of wonders, where each artisan tends to their little shop, fervently working on their crafts. Once a thriving collective of over 60 artisans, their numbers have dwindled significantly in the wake of the pandemic. The rise of mass-produced, commercial crafts has cast a shadow over their livelihoods, pushing many talented artisans out of business.
Yet, those who remain have forged a remarkable bond of empowerment. They've come together, not as competitors, but as collaborators, trading their crafts with one another. This collective spirit ensures that when a curious traveler stumbles upon their charming oasis, they're greeted with a diverse array of souvenirs to choose from, each piece infused with the love and dedication of these resilient artisans.
We are genuinely thrilled to embark on a partnership with the San Blas artisan collective. It's a heartwarming journey that transcends borders and connects us with artisans who represent the very essence of our mission. Through custom orders for Generous Intentions, we aim to celebrate their exquisite craft and contribute to the preservation of traditions that define their lives.
