About our pieces
Since 2013 we have distinguished ourselves by the production and export of unique and unconventional pieces of Huichol art from Morelia, Michoacán, Mexico.

In Marakame we have works that are made using two basic techniques: beading and yarn painting. Which are carried out in an exhaustive period that goes from a week to months of work.

Both Fernando and Marcela have joined the production of these pieces, collaborating from an unorthodox space in the way of participating in the world of the Huichol artist, the spirituality of art. And it is that behind each Huichol piece patiently elaborated by the artists there are in their symbolic designs ritual practices that give form and expression to their philosophy and practice of life. By participating both from within this culture, they have been able to understand and verify that Mexico has a very little known cultural wealth.
Mtro. Luis de la Crúz from the community of San Andrés Cohamiata, Jalisco, and Fernando Motilla, partner of Marakame.
In Marakame we specialize in the projection and sale of collectibles and we take care together with the huichol artists of the impeccable manufacture of each piece. The elements of the worldview of these artists are reflected in it, making them unique and unrepeatable artworks, as each artist has a particular way of expressing their feelings, colors, shapes and visions. From the elements that have been shaping for centuries for their spiritual importance, such as the blue deer, corn, the eagle and the "tuutú" (peyote) rose, all descendants of the Sun God "Tau"; to the emerging symbology of contemporary Huichol artists with a conceptual meaning, which has emerged from the Huichol culture and its magical traditions.

When someone acquires a piece of Marakame, collaborates through its purchase to the preservation of the ceremonial festivals of the artists and their families through our Marakame AC Foundation. It is also bringing to your home or private collection a record of the history of life in the universe, according to Wixárika knowledge .

This is how the vision of Marcela and Fernando, through Marakame is to be a bridge through Huichol art so that world society looks out to see the color and fine details of a contemporary indigenous Mexican culture alive.
