Green Festival November 2010: Why The Green Festival Still Matters via Bonnie Hulkower at TreeHugger
San Francisco – November 5, 2010 On November 6th and 7th at the San Francisco Green Festival, Mexico By Hand will be exhibiting fine quality handmade Fair Trade crafts and folk art from Michoacán, Mexico.
Mexico By Hand is a small Bay Area business that is dedicated to promoting traditional crafts and folk art created by talented award-winning indigenous artists in their family run workshops. For hundreds of years, thousands of artisans in this region have attempted to sustain their families and communities by making and selling their art. All of these artists use the natural resources found in or near their villages: baskets woven from tule reeds and pine needles, lead-free hand painted pottery, and beautiful hammered copper vases and bowls made from 100% recycled copper.
Mexico By Hand, based in the San Francisco Bay Area and doing business since 2004, has been selected to exhibit at the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market for four years now, and has received tremendous response from galleries, gift shops, and museum stores across the United States, including SFMOMA and The deYoung Museum. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to buy museum quality indigenous art here in the Bay Area.
