Denisse Kuri is a Mexican fashion brand that creates exclusive pieces of art - fusing time-honored indigenous textile tradition and organic design.
Kuri discovered her passion for indigenous handmade textiles while doing social-work in the Mexican state of Chiapas and was forever inspired by the craftswomen. In 2010, Kuri founded her brand as a tribute and retribution to these women, who shared their knowledge and wisdom with her.
Kuri’s main objective is to preserve the tradition of indigenous textiles, show reverence for the indigenous woman, and foster emotional-economic independence for them through their craft.
Her mission is to help people recognize their work as art and them as artists, and feel privileged to own such works of art.
“Upon weaving, the artisan leaves a part of herself in the piece - her time and dedication is woven into each piece.”
