NIKAN is a word of Nahuatl origin meaning "here", referring to the presence of Mexico in particular, in the brand means that " Mexico is here ".
It is a project dedicated to the culture and raise awareness of the world with creative handmade Mexican elements. We seek to encourage the socio-economic development of our artisans, creating productive projects that help their economy and social protection according to the standards of fair trade and make their work known.
Their products evoke nostalgia, memories and cultural identity. We want the person who buys our products to share an experience with Mexico through craftsmanship. Nikan México promotes Mexican culture, the value of the craftsman's work, his dignity and fair trade. "Our artisans belong to indigenous communities, far from urban areas, are men and women who seek every day to bring food for their families.
For example, Marcelina, originally from the state of Querétaro, who makes mini-pinatas. A few years ago she came with her partner and children to work in the city of Acuña Coahuila, looking for better opportunities dedicated to selling various crafts. Her husband recently passed away and she is now the main breadwinner for their 5 children.
We also have the experience of Don Erasmo from Jalisco who produces charro hats, Mrs. Esmeralda from Saltillo, Coahuila who produces the colorful "sarapes" elaborated in loom and Leticia from Oaxaca, Mexico, who produces beautiful "Alebrijes".
Thank you very much for promotinga sustainable Mexican art.
