My name is Tanya. Originally from the state of Veracruz in southern Mexico, I grew up in a multicultural environment. One day, I decided to follow my love for discovering new cultures and here I am in France for several years.
In 2016, I decided to create the project RAIZS Handicrafts in Solidarity in order to share the cultural diversity of Mexico and to tell the story of this culture as well as of hundreds of artists from the indigenous communities, because it is thanks to them that we can enjoy this diversity.
This project is a tribute to my grandmother, originally from the Zapotec community, who transmitted to me this love for my roots, my origins, my RAIZS. Also, this project is an invitation to travel in order to discover all the colors of my culture, my people, and these landscapes.
The word RAIZ comes from the Latin word "radix" which means the idiosyncratic origin of an individual or a community, thus "root". I decided to add an "S" because as citizens of the world, we sometimes have many roots that remind us of where we come from.
