This limited-edition, square La Plaza Amate Art features natural textures and patterns inspired by the Artisans’ ancient Aztec heritage. Each piece of amate art has variations that are unique to the Artisan who created it, making it ideal to purchase two and pair them together for a balanced look. The neutral colors and natural textures of this La Plaza Amate Art coordinate beautifully with almost any wall décor!

Once used as a primary form of communication, record keeping, and religious ceremonies in many villages in Mexico, amate art is traditionally handcrafted using paper pulp made from sustainable and eco-friendly tree bark. Each piece of amate paper often takes one Artisan several days to complete.

Your La Plaza Amate Art purchase includes a coordinating natural colored mat. Together, your amate paper art and included coordinating mat are designed to fit into a 12" x 12" frame. Every purchase supports families living in areas of extreme poverty in Mexico.

Every product has variations as a part of the Artisan-made charm!
