Discovering Pátzcuaro, Michoacán
In the VBM studio, we know that connection is everything. Seemingly insignificant encounters prove to be synchronistic, leading to deeper communication and more exciting opportunities later on. The people of Michoacán believe the same thing. It is not possible to simply make an order and expect it to be delivered. Relationships between family members, between friends, and between artesanos and customers are cherished and carefully nurtured.
Virginie has personally met each artist working for the VBM Studio. Each has been recognised by their peers for outstanding, exquisite workmanship, and working with Virginie allows them to continue practising their ancient trades while being paid fairly for their work. As an artisan herself, Virginie feels humbled and privileged to be working with these amazingly talented artesanos.
