Joana Valdez, an Industrial designer from the Yucatán, and Karim Molina, a textile designer from Venezuela, are the brilliant designers behind Ayres. Inspired by historical, natural and primitive roots, they highlight the beauty of the materials - working with natural materials like Guayacán and Tzalam woods, lava rocks and natural leathers. Their processes are completely handmade allowing each object to be a unique piece.
Ayres collaborates with artisans throughout México, but the Yucatán is the primary origin of their pieces and the where their atelier is located. Joana and Karim personally seek the materials and the artisans they work with, giving a sentimental and intimate side to each of their designs. Their philosophy is that we all deserve special objects that tell a story and have a purpose within our spaces.
