Description

The name “Molcajete” comes from the Nahuatl (Aztec language of Mexico) words temolcaxitl and mollicaxtli, meaning stone sauce bowl. This concept has been translated into a contemporary mortar and pestle hand carved from marble and tzalam wood.

We are Joana Valdez, Industrial designer from Yucatán, México and Karim Molina, Textile designer from Caracas, Venezuela. We design utility and simple objects with a primary aesthetic. Our basic shapes are unique, remembering prehistoric utensils. Inspired by our historical, natural and primitive roots, we highlight the beauty of the materials, design and quality. We work with natural materials like Guayacán and Tzalam woods, lava rocks and natural leathers. Our processes are completely handmade allowing each object be a unique piece, love to always explore new tecniques and materials. We work our designs in several states in México, one in Yucatán, where we produce wood designs. We seek to establish fair terms of trade with artisans and that can allow us to offer objects 100% handmade with high quality materials and the most beautiful hand craft work. Our philosophy is that all we deserve special objects that tell a story and a purpose within our spaces, that is why we personally seek the materials and the artisans we work with, these gives a sentimental and totally intimate side to each of our designs. We design and create simple handmade objects with the finest materials and a great story behind, proposing a simple, natural and personal life.
