More Info

Esencia Artesanal, a beneift for the victims of Chiapas earthquake of 2017, is born from the love that I feel for the artisanal handicrafts that come from that state in Mexico. Many of my pieces in Xitlali Designs are influenced by the work of the indigenous people in regions such as Chiapas. For that reason, this event was a natural manifestation to aid fellow man and support in maintaining their rich and beautiful culture. In 2017, during my first trip to Chiapas, I had the pleasure of visiting various towns including San Cristobal de las Casas y Palenque. It inspired me to return to my “Escencia” or my true self and learn more of Mexico. There I was blessed to find a wonderful organization called Proyecto ConcentrArte, a group in Mexico that focuses on reconstructing education and resilience through the arts for these towns in Mexico that have been devastated after a catastrophe such as the 2017 earthquake. This is how Esencia Artesanal came to be and for me it is also an honor to give respect by raising awareness for this art craft and the beautiful people that make it. For them this art is not just a way to make a living but also an act of resilience against all adversities. $15 - General Admission $40 - VIP includes preferred seating, alcholic drink, gift bag, special thank you.
