Mexican handicrafts are famous throughout the world because of their beautiful colors, masterful craftsmanship, and also for the traditions that were inherited from generation to generation. They're a beautiful representation of the rich cultural that characterizes Mexico, fabricated from a foundation of history, learning and folklore.
The Casa de las Artesanías de Michoacán was founded in 1972 to preserve and spread one of the most important Mexican traditions in the country: the artisanal folk art produced in the numerous regions of the state.
This artisan handicraft center displays and sells beautiful Mexican crafts made by talented Michoacan artisans who dedicate their lives to creating pieces of great cultural value. Many of them learned their trade in childhood, a family inheritance that has been passed down for hundreds of years.
The building that houses the Casa de las Artesanías, today the Michoacano Artisan Institute, is itself a work of art. It's the Ex-Convent of San Francisco, a beautiful construction dating back to the 16th century. This marvel is located in the historic city center, just a few steps from the beautiful Morelia Cathedral and next to Plaza Valladolid. In addition to the museums and galleries, artisan workshops are organized in this building so attendees can create handicrafts of their own and experience the splendor and art that is part of the fascinating Mexican traditions.
