If your merchandise has a significant defect, please send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org within a period not exceeding 7 calendar days with your full name or the name of the person who made the purchase order, photographs of the product and what is damaged, broken, or missing, as well as the packaging inside and outside wherever shipping label visible. The case will be analyzed and up to six different alternatives are offered, reserving the probability of an additional one, depending on the case, and if we consider it so:
1. Exchange for another piece, which being unique, would be selecting one or more to your liking as long as the price at which the piece was purchased is equivalent to that of the requested piece.
2. That the part be returned to us, repaired and resent.
3. Money back-upon receipt of the piece in our studio.
4. Credit available for when there is a piece to your liking.
5. Partial refund to cover restoration costs.
6. Redo the piece.
In any of the six cases, depending on the damage to the piece, we reserve the right to request that the piece be returned for repair and disposal for sale, the shipping cost of which would be covered by us. In the event that you must return the piece, it must be with a package equivalent to the one that protected it when it arrived at its last destination, just as we packed it. Otherwise, we could have a total loss of the piece, so there would be no refund.
When a package is shipped to another country, it may be subject to import taxes, duties, or fees imposed by the destination country. Generally, these charges must be paid once the package arrives in the destination country. Depending on the country, the buyer may be required to pay these charges when receiving the package. The loss of a piece by omission in the payment of tariffs by the buyer invalidates the guarantee that Arte Marakame gives to it.
It is worth mentioning that by buying a product in Arte Marakame, you are accepting these policies.
Note: If the damaged craft was purchased from a dealer, please contact them directly and follow their refund policy. Arte Marakame does not accept returns of handicrafts purchased from distributors.

Nierika It is a Wixárika voice that can be translated into Spanish as the "gift of vision", specifically alluding to the vision of the ancestral gods. This is achieved through ceremonies and offerings aimed at knowing the hidden or authentic state of things.
Marakame collaborates with Wixaritari artists for the production and distribution of these vision instruments, respecting and conserving the traditional processes with which they have been historically made: calibrated glass beads, campeche wax and a wooden support.
Each of these circles or tondo it encodes ceremonial and spiritual narratives, linked with patterns of figures and color that characterize the Wixárika worldview: animals, vegetation, the stars and the gods that speak to us the truths of the cosmos.
In Marakame we work with five Wixaritari -huichol- artists who produce especially large-format pieces with the ancient technique of "Painted with Stamen", we decided to commission the artists works of up to 6 m2 surface -being these the largest in the world in their style and technique-, from the ancient style to more realistic representations, according to the pictorial style of each creator, in any case addressing the narrative of their traditional custom through the most representative symbology of their worldview. Help preserve this technique through art collecting.
