INTRODUCING MAYALMA

– artisan crafted home accessories – from Mexico

Imagine the rich, warm colours of Mexico, heritage crafts passed down through generations and the passion of many artisans preserving a unique creative tradition.  Imagine these fused together in one new enterprise that aims to bring vibrancy, excitement and authentic craftsmanship back into the home.  This is Mayalma.

Mayalma is a new idea in home accessories.   Inspired by the sheer beauty and cultural diversity of Mexico and the amazing range of authentic crafts available –   Edward de Wolfe, founder and his Mexican wife Alma saw a gap in the UK market for unique hand crafted home accessories sourced directly from local artisans.

All products available from Mayalma are made using traditional techniques – from the stunning mouth blown recycled glassware of Jalisco to the intricately hand painted pottery of Michoacan.  Just a few well chosen pieces will create a stunning new focus for every room of the home.  Perfect for al fresco dining is the elegant sky blue fluted bowl or the eye catching salad bowls in webbed confetti design or multi-coloured glass.  Complete your summer table with a stunning two toned iridescent glass water jug and matching glasses.

Mayalma pottery comes in an assortment of intricate mosaic and rustic styles all beautifully turned and coloured – choose from a range of vases and decorative pieces for added room interest.   Stunning embroidery from the Otomi community, inspired by ancient spiritual wall paintings adds historic splendour and startling colour to soft furnishings. Cushion covers resplendent with colourful wild birds and imaginative flora and fauna designs will give your favourite chair or settee some exotic flair!  And why not go for some bigger statement pieces such as the totally contemporary white and green stripe Acapulco chair.
