                    ABOUT US

We are specialized in Percussion Art, Huichol Art, Metal Art, Ceramic Art, Woodcarving Art, Paintings, Textile Art and lots of other Art Types. Thank you very much for visiting our Website. We are a small team of two people and work together with more than 30 different artisans from different ethnic communities. We also work together with several manufacturers in different locations here in Mexico.

I was born in Rostock - Germany 32 years back but I have lived for the last 12 years in Mexico. I have obtained my citizenship 2 years ago and I am very proud to be a Mexican now. My partner Miguel  Angel (54) was born in Taxco, Guerrero – Mexico, he studied in Portland – Oregon USA but has lived the last 30 years mainly in Acapulco running the family's hotel and after it was sold, in different States here in Mexico. We both currently live in San Miguel de Allende where most of our artisan friends live. 80 % of our Art comes from Tepoztlán and San Miguel de Allende Mexico. Both are famous and are referred to here in Mexico as ‘’Magic Towns’’.

We offer you to get rare Mexican Folk Art and Percussion Art direct from the producers. Most of our products are unique pieces and we take care in selecting them for you and have added them for sale here in this Website. Also please take a look at our Photo Section and you will see a lot of different items which we have or had and if you see anything you like, please let us know and we will get it for you. We speak English, Spanish and also German.

We both love to travel and to learn more about our beautiful country and its magical places and culture. Our government does little to support our traditions and artisans. Most artisans which come from different ethnic groups are very poor and come from very small villages up in the mountainous regions.

They don’t have access or the knowledge to easily sell their art and sometimes they have to trade their work as artists in order to work in their fields, as they aren't  able to support their families just with the art work. Our idea is to help them to sell this beautiful art they make because that will keep our Mexican traditions alive and it will help other people to learn more about them. We want to create new Circles for people who love Prehispanic Music, Instruments and other Mexican Folk Arts.

We have gained a lot of experience on Ebay and also made it to ‘’POWER SELLER’’ with a 100% positive feedback. We are also verified Paypal users and we had over 800 happy Transactions in the last year.

It’s a pleasure for us doing this Website because we hope to meet a lot of new friends from all over the world and we would love to have you join us as a new Member. We have made a lot of friends in the last year, a lot of them are members of Aztec dance groups, that’s why we dedicated a special place in our Site for people who love Prehispanic Music and Mexican Folk Art.

You can contact us anytime if you have any question or if there is anything that we can do for you.
