Trapiche Candelabra Set
Our Trapiche Candelabra represents the natural brown sugar called piloncillo in Mexico. The set of two candelabras is made of Cocuite wood by a Nahua indigenous cooperative farm in southern Veracruz. Cocuite is sustainably harvested 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.
Each candelabra comes with handmade white candles and a handled pouch handwoven of ixtle fibers.
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.
