Mexican Design Notebooks


Artisan fusion: Mexican Design Notebooks

Mexican design notebooks reflect our identity without falling into clichés. Alejandro Magallón’s designs stand out in a market saturated with the same elements (colloquial phrases, nopales, Fridas and catrinas) and are like a breath of fresh air.

We wanted to add the notebooks to his proposal of clothing and this is how the Artisan Fusion emerged: Mexican Design Notebooks

We love the versatility that they have since they work as: agenda, diary, blog, poetry book, short stories, for sketches, stories, memories, memories and for all those special moments.

A model was taken from each collection, in total there are 4 collections: Heart, Map of Mexico, Urban Design and Languages.

In the notebooks we decided to use the same models as for the t-shirts:

“EMBROIDERED HEART”

This is the first design of the collection of hearts, honoring the Chiapaneco embroidery, one of the most emblematic features of this culture. The embroidered heart symbolizes knowledge inherited from generation to generation, exhibiting the beauty of embroidery and the magic of its artisan hands.

“BOUGAINVILLEA “

This is the first design of the urban collection. The bougainvillea is a special plant, it is given a wide medicinal use in the states of central and southern Mexico is such its importance and beauty that even the skulls stand out with an extraordinary style.

“NAHUATL”

This is the first design of the collection of indigenous languages, which are an invaluable heritage of the cultural roots of Mexico. Within the 68 linguistic groupings, the NAHUATL is considered in slow extinction. We want to keep them alive.

Do not forget our mother tongue.

“MAKA IXKILKABA TOTLAJTOL “

“MEXICO COLORS”

This is the first design of the map collection. This is Mexico: immense, colorful, cultural, unique, with a huge diversity of ethnicities, languages, peoples, traditions, history, beaches, gastronomy and crafts. So different and at the same time … only one.
