MILAGROS Mexican Shop - We work with independent makers and small workshops to create quality hand made products, combining both traditional techniques with contemporary design. Our products are sourced from Mexico.
MILAGROS Mexican glassware made from recycled glass:
Next time you throw away a bottle, a glass one that is, remember that you might be depriving the world of another beautiful piece of brilliantly coloured glassware. For in a small family run workshop in Mexico, a family of glass blowers, create jugs, bowls and so on from just that: Pepsi bottles at the end of their reusable life and other discarded glass objects are collected and melted down. The glass is an evolving blend of Mexican sensibilities influenced by American and Scandinavian design of the 20’s, traditional techniques and designs commissioned by buyers. The results are not for those who favour the symmetry of the production line. The handmade pieces are imperfect in their beauty, an integral part of their individuality.
MILAGROS Mexican handmade ceramic tiles:
These tiles are handmade and measure 10.5cm x 10.5cm. The surface quality is not uniform but is vivid in colour and texture, minor imperfections are an intrinsic part of the tile. The glaze of the tiles has a slight crackle which can be enhanced with a choice of grout. There is a choice of fifteen tiles, a single colour, a pattern or a melange of tiles can be used. The tiles can be used in both traditional and contemporary settings.
We also import and sell skeleton figures from Day of the Dead; hand woven bags, handmade mirrors and mexican hot chocolate.
Sundays 9.00am - 3.00pm or by appointment
