Lichanat Wooden Spice Holders
Our Lichanat Wooden Spice holders are made of Cocuite wood in the shape of pumpkin seeds. Cocuite is sustainably harvested from a Nahua indigenous cooperative farm in southern Veracruz and has the interesting characteristic of being able to regrow quickly from any branch that is replanted after harvesting a tree. One tree can propagate ten more.
We use these for salt and pepper, but they could have many uses in your home.
Rituality, Beauty and Permanence
Our partner, Casa de la Cruz, works hand in hand with artisans in the creation of objects that reflect the cultural diversity of Veracruz. The initiative was born in response to the need to reactivate artisanal production in the communities, to generate productive supply chains, as well as preserving and disseminating the cultural and artisanal heritage of Veracruz.
Casa de la Cruz collaborates with artisans from more than 20 communities located from the coast to the mountains; creators whose expertise, life stories, commitment, and dedication, place them as bearers of a cultural tradition, a resistance front against the disappearance of this legacy.
Our Casa de la Cruz collection is the result of traditional artisan techniques, from the use of materials obtained in a responsible way, ensuring their permanence for the future, to the contemporary design processes and horizontal collaboration based on respect and dialogue. Authentic objects, made in an ethical and sustainable way, taking as inspiration beauty, traditions, stories, and the natural and cultural heritage of Veracruz.
