Olinala Trays


by alicia d'core

Alicia D'core is a Mexican Brand, focused in generating value by working with specialized and expert Mexican Artisans.

 

"Olinala trays" are hand made by artisans from Olinala, Guerrero-Mexico.  With a tecnique called "rayado-vaciado" (rulling-hollowing out) mithycal and traditional figures are created over a tray made of wood, using pigments made in a very traditional and autochthonous way with vegetable paints produced by them (chia oil, tecoxtle, quartz, limestone, cotton fiber and natural pigments)

 

To shape the proposed design they use pre-hispanic tools such us maguey spines, agates and jades, deer tails, turkey feathers, etc,  preserving this art in modern, useful and fine objects.
