Pieces made using three distinctive techniques from southern Mexico: the Mayan waist loom, jipijapa weaving, and carving of recovered bull horn remains. These pieces are juxtaposed with different elements to create MOOK. These pieces are made with a Mayan loom base and delicate recovered horn piece assembled on top of the jipijapa woven circles.
MOOK is the bond that fuses the talent of each of the artisan communities that make the Peninsular Collection a collaborative project full of pride, making each piece unique. It symbolizes the excitement and pride of each of the social enterprises participating in this project to see the process and result of each component materialize and become one-of-a-kind pieces.
The flat nude-colored sandal is made from regenerated materials with a comfort sole, Mayan loom textile in an ecru color with an assembly of cotton thread, recovered horn links, and jipijapa weaving. Finished with a semi-square toe.
