About the artisan:
On the Mexican Caribbean peninsula, outside of the city of Merida, the Piste Brothers have been working the local wood of Dzityá, Yucatan for many generations. Known as the founders of the Collectivo de Artesanos de Dzityá, they’ve tried to bring prosperity to their town which was once well known for its canteros, aka stone workers. The wood indigenous to their land is unique in its beauty and form and 6th generation master woodworkers: Luis, Marco, and Yoni learned from their father at an early age on the proper technique to work their local woods. Each piece is worked by hand and simple tools, with much of the shaping and forming done by hand.
Don Gregorio is a 4th generation cantero, stoneworker, who has been carving and shaping the Yucatan’s marble his whole 51 years of life. He collaborated with MyCajita and the Piste brothers to bring you a beautiful one-of-a-kind collection.
