Folk art in Mexico is a reflection of its identity. In order to share and promote the wide variety of folk art that is created throughout the different regions of Mexico, three friends, Sara, Michelle and Sofía, created a small company, Lanii (the zapotec word for “party”).

As the name implies, Lanii is a celebration of colors and textures, a combination of materials, dyes and even flavors. The company works directly with artisans from different regions of Mexico, mainly from the state of Oaxaca.

Lanii’s objective is to inspire new perspectives on handcrafts, making them contemporary without diminishing the traditional artistic processes by which they are made.
