Mexico’s handicrafts

One of my favorite days in Mexico was spent at a market filled with color. There were Katarinas (Dia De Los Muertos Southern belles), figures all hand painted, woven and beaded jewelry and tons of handicrafts. It was heaven. Weeks later, I’m looking back at these photos wishing I would have bought more. But I guess that always happens, right?

Enjoy these photos; there are a lot.

    Hi, just came across your blog and love your pictures!Those squeletons are call Muerte Catrina, no Katarina. She suposed to be a rich lady, it’s what catrina means.

  2. I love the lazy cats and the beautiful flowers. We need markets like this in the U.S. too where everything is bright and vibrant!

    • Scarlet Valdez says:

      It is best to visit these markets in the place of origin, this serves to meet other beautiful places and visit the beautiful beaches of Mexico, and visit the magic villages of Baja California Sur, Oaxaca, Sinaloa, Puebla and more!!, Mexico 🙂

    • artistaw13 says:

      I totally agree with this comment. 🙂 Where is the color in our world?

  3. Des says:

    i agree with maggie, the colors are amazing. such beautiful shots!

  4. I love your pics! Bright and beautiful and inspiring!

  8. Wow, such colorful, fun scenes. I love the detail and craftsmanship that goes into these wares. Beautiful photos and congrats on being Freshly Pressed.

  9. Markets in Mexico are amazing! Thanks for sharing your photos, and congrats on FP-ed. It will be equally amazing, I promise!

  10. You know, as a writer by passion and profession, I’m taking a tip from your post.

    COLOR! These images are so vibrant and beautiful — it makes me realize that as a writer, an artist, a human, we need color in our lives. I love the Mexican culture for espousing such a colorful approach … to everything!

    🙂

    wonderful! I made a short vid on the Day of the Dead presentation by Grand Rapids (Michigan) Public Library this past year, they did a great job of it. Dia De Los Muertos is so inspirational. Great photos

    Were you in San Miguel de Allende?? Where in Mexico, because it so reminds me of SMA and the beauty of color.

    thank you so much

  17. super fantastic! thanks so much!

  18. Great images of a typical latin american market! Beinging Mexican American and growing up in Southern California, I constantly am inspired by these vibrant colors and try to incorporate them in to my New York apartment as liberaly as possible.

    Bright and beautiful photos–nice work.

  20. enjoibeing says:

    the colors of these pictures are amazing! vibrant and colorful! looks like you had a fun time shooting these photos. very very nice love your post eye popping!

  21. Tus fotos están hermosísimas, creo que has captado de una forma muy particular, esos colores y combinación de objetos. Lo disfrute mucho. Ojala puedas venir a Rep. Dom., y ver nuestra artesanía igual.

  22. AWESOME photos. Wow. I just love all the color…. and that bird is just remarkable, but I love the little horse-y figurines too, and it’s a good thing I’ve never been to Mexico because I’d come back laden with trinkets and relieved of all cash. 😀 Great blog and congrats on being Fresh Pressed!

  27. Your photos made me feel in Mexico! It is great that you have included people 🙂
    The colors are indeed amazing!

  28. Valerie says:

    We were in Playa Del Carmen for Dia De Los Muertos a few years ago and it was amazing to see the quality and detail of the artwork up close.

    It was definitely eye-opening how lovely it is (so much of the “tourist” art we come across doesn’t compare)

  29. Xicoinc says:

    The Catrinas are beautiful and the Oaxacan style animals are amazing. These are really great examples of Mexican folk art.

  30. What beautiful shots and handywork. Successful capturing of the the culture. Reminds me of when I visited. Check out some more handy work at

  31. TweeCo says:

    Beautiful! Brilliant color!

  32. Victoria says:

    I love Catrinas. I even made one 😀

  33. I remember going to a Mexican market and wondering what should I buy to bring back to my classes? I chose about half a dozen toys I thought my students would enjoy: unos baleros, un boxeador, unas escaleras de Jacobo, unos gimnastas. There were so many colorful and ingeniously handcrafted items. In the end to avoid buying everything, I took dozens of pictures to show my students and avoided buying too much. Great, great pictures! You captured this market beautifully. Congratulations on your FP status today. Keep taking pictures.

  41. starrypawz says:

    Gorgeous photos. I really love the unicorn/pegasus you have in there, the colours are so vibrant.

  42. Geoff says:

    I love these images with the vibrancy of the colors. A wonderful blaze of colors.

  43. Nanola says:

    Aaaaaaahhhh, THANK YOU! That was a deep sigh of gratitude. I lived in Puerto Vallarta for a few months and the colors and figures you captured helped that piece of my life return even for only a glimpse. Peacock was quite special 🙂

  44. Randi says:

    Amazing, oh I wish I was there! I love your shots–are you using digital or film? I can’t tell 😛

  45. I love all the colours, kinda makes me want to go to Mexico!

  46. portaldimoda says:

    I loved the México, your colors and your culture, for example of Frida, and the calaveras of the Posada. A loved the katrina by Posada! Beautiful post and beautiful pictures!

  47. Cindi says:

    What a fun way to spend the day. I love markets, and I too agree with one of the other comments that said we need more of these in the US. I see more of them in the area of the South that I live in than I guess there are in other places. Instead of markets they’re called “arts fest” or “wine fest” or “beer fest” seems as it their is always and festival of flea market going on. It’s just good to get outside and walk, mingle with others and learn different cultures.

  48. jule1 says:

    The one time I went to Mexico I couldn’t afford any of the painted animals — and now, from your pictures, I am coveting them! Of all the “stuff”, this is the thing I still would like to have. So much detail goes into them! Who knows why a person wants one thing and not another? Thanks for the pictures and for rekindling my desire to go back.

  49. Nice to see Mr. Death on this bright Spring day. Thanks.

  50. danagucito says:

    I see these handicrafts almost everyday and I had not realized how appreciated is mexican art in other countries.

    Thanks for the pictures, welcome to Mexico

  51. Bill says:

    Loved the photo’s. Where is this market located? Have you ever been to the Balderas
    Market in Mexico City?

    Cheers

    instead of regretting not buying more, you should make a huge picture collage… then you can have it all. :]

    Glorious! Mexican markets have provided me with the best shopping experiences!

  99. Hi Lauren,

    That’s a hit, well done.
    I also love Mexico and its artisans, its way of life and the vibrancy and simplicity one can experience. I just was in Jalisco, in Ajijic and also spent time in Tonala, a suburb of Guadalajara, and Tlaquepaque, where many crafts are sold. I wondered where you were and the photos were made. I picked up an antique Dia de Muertos angel with nice large wings in flying position, with a skull for a head, carrying what looks like a large pineapple.
    Many here in Canada always ask about safety in Mexico lately, so I wrote a post on my blog about that. Thanks for the photos, Johanna

  102. Megly says:

    Beautiful! Just got back from Mexico, as well…there was so much color everywhere! Couldn’t help but smile. A lot of the souvenirs I saw weren’t this beautiful, though. I did bring home some hand-woven turtles 🙂 And I want those purses (about half-way down the page)!

  103. Jimmy says:

    I was in Peru in ’98. All of the trinket srotes had much of the same junk painted in the same way. I probably had $100 worth of the stuff (which was on the order of 50 or 60 trinkets) when I stumbled across a guy in an alley who was selling hand-painted postcards for about 50 cents. I bought four and sent two. The other two are in my office. Gorgeous and blue and vibrant and unique. I wish I had spent just a few dollars more with that guy!

  104. Just wonderful! Thank you for sharing.

  105. The blacks dolls are cute!
    Do they have a name like Muerte Catrina?

  106. The colors are gorgeous, you really capture the beauty of Mexican artwork

  107. The ‘Catrina’ was created as a metaphorical representation of the societie’s upper class before the Mexican Revolution (1910), but was later adopted as the representation of death in Mexico celebrated as ‘Día de Muertos’ (the Day of the Dead) on November the 1st and 2nd; on these day we decorate our houses to receive the souls of our dead with joy and respect. But also the ‘Catrina’ with her flamboyant personality, flirty and bold reminder that life is here and now.
    Great pictures, Congratulations.

  108. Rike says:

    Those colors are just amazing and make me wanna travel even more to see all the beautiful places earth still provides for us!!!

  109. Wow I wish I was in Mexico right now.

  110. The Mexican crafts are always a feast for the eyes with their bright colors. So enjoyed a trip down memory lane. We have been to various Mexican areas and have always loved the people and their crafts. The photo’s made me want to go back soon.Nicely done ….!!!!

    great pictures! when i was in new mexico i bought the most amazing catrina doll/statue, she’s so fragile though that i’ve already broken off all her limbs at least once and had to re-glue them on. wanted to start collecting them, but maybe it just wasn’t meant to be in my case hahaa.

  146. bonzoWhale says:

    I’m sure this was said before me and is probably not very relevant, but they’re actually called Catrinas… the story of the Catrina and the Mexican portrayals of death begin with the amazing cartoonist José Guadalupe Posada.

    Of course, Katarinas is probably a widely used term as well, not unlike the misconception of tacos as hard shelled tortillas, or the idea that Cinco de Mayo is a HUGE freaking deal in Mexico… but that’s just what gets “lost in translation”.

    Random nitpicking misconceptions aside, these are truly beautiful pictures of the markets, very colorful, and any good publicity Mexico can get is surely to be appreciated, because it’s truly a marvelous country (and I’m not just saying that because I’m Mexican).

  147. Simple stuff yet so electric.Is there a site where you can buy this stuff. I’d like to shelve a whole wall with it. How about pictures painted wooden carts and wagons.

  148. littlebearz says:

    very colorful indeed. Too colorful 🙂

  149. OMG how did you not absolutely buy EVERYTHING in those photos??

    I would have a hard time narrowing my selection down to just a few things from your photos alone, let alone an entire market!

    Looks like a wonderful place; I wouldn’t even know where to start! I really want to go to Mexico… Beautiful pics!

    Oh! What memories that pic of the marionettes brought back to me! My parents took us to Mexico when I was about 5 or 6–to visit relatives. They bought the four of us girls (back when there were only 4 of us still)beautiful marionettes to play with. I can still remember the colorful dress my doll had.

    I’ve always loved and been fascinated by marionettes ever since then. I use to love the shows that came to our school when I was in grade school. And I love all your images, too!

    Hey. amazing pictures. I never knew Mexico had such a vibrant, vivid handicraft collection. Normally, handicrafts bore me to the extent that I avoid them like the plague. But this makes me want to go and buy some. Infact the pictures posted on the WordPress homepage was what drew me here. 😀

    Qué lindas fotos!!!!!!!! 🙂

    Qué bueno estar en el país de Frida Kahlo, y sobre todo ver esas artesanías de la muerte, ellos tienen todo un culto a la muerte. Me fascina cuando para los primeros días de Noviembre componen esos poemas llamados “calaveritas”. La verdad que son muy religiosos, y llenos de energía. Ojalá pueda ir algún día.
