We select, curate and share
important design objects

 

Selection

txt.ure is a brand that identifies lost fragments and narratives of Mexican design history, and expresses them through new works, with an emphasis on craftsmanship and preserving historical techniques. 

Curation

txt.ure is a curatorial endeavor that aims at attaining the highest quality through our expertise in design and focus on local craftsmanship. We revisit forgotten masterworks of popular design and update them for the contemporary consumer. 

Community

We create a link between our past and our modern spaces, while rescuing and preserving the endangered manufacturing techniques that embody our products. We are passionate about empowering local communities and craftsmen through contemporary design methods. 


Work Ethic

Txt.ure is a collaborative design project committed to revisit classic design pieces from Mexican folk tradition with special functional, historical, and aesthetic qualities. 

We believe at txt.ure that collaboration between design and craftsmanship promotes experimentation and innovation, which are necessary to the development of Mexican contemporary design. 

We are currently designing a social interaction methodology to change positively the life of artisans, who are our associates. We consider ourselves a collaborative design practice and conceive Design in itself is a vehicle for social transformation.

Our production plan improves the working conditions of the artisans, ensures the preservation of traditional techniques, and fosters the aesthetic sensibility of craftsmen and workers.  


A Workshop to revive a pre-hispanic furniture

For our first collection of objects txt.ure made an alliance with our master artisan, Don Nacho Morales, to build a workshop dedicated to the creation of furniture made out of tule while improving the living conditions of the artisan family.

Our idea became a Kickstarter campaign and (happily) and successfully we funded! On this section you can read more about the updates and the journey to the construction of a workshop to revive pre-hispanic woven furniture.
