Ma’lele is a project created by Mario Enrique Arenas Inda and Ana Luz Tapia Medina and produced by the creative studios CNProduction Design and TOQ TOQ.
We are a group of artisans, designers, and dreamers that have come together to collaborate on different projects at different times. Creative individuals who seek to promote the cultural diversity of each region, with the objective of preserving the meaning and values of each village or community. We represent the cultural expression of each ethnic group and village originally from the Mexican territory through its textiles, apparel, accessories, and its meaning. The purpose is that through an artisanal icon we can safeguard these cultural heritages.
Ma’lele is productive value chain, as a group of hands in different workshops and different places within Mexico give life to each Ma’lele. We do it out of love for the Mexican culture: for its villages, its traditions, and its colours— our commitments to disseminate, admire, and preserve the folklore of the original villages.
