When textile designer Alison Jones moved from New York to Mexico City for her husband’s job, she knew she had to start a company that helped to bring opportunity to talented local artisans that would otherwise not have access to selling their products to a larger international market. The resulting goods are nothing short of beautiful. At Alegria Home most of the items are designed in house, and then they are artisan produced.
The handwoven napkins might have to find their way to my dining room table, and I can’t get enough of the Otomi pillows. Alison also travels throughout Mexico and Guatemala to source handcrafted items like ombré pottery and vintage huipil pillows for their Mercado. To see the entire collection go to here.
