The Mexican city of Oaxaca has always been known for its indigenous culture and crafts, yet it is only recently that its more modern side has gained international attention.
The mix of strong craftsmanship and deep traditional knowledge has made the city a growing source of inspiration for the art and design community. Casa Verde
demonstrates how seamlessly modern and traditional can be mixed, and rrres focusing on home interiors, is known for its abstract colourful rugs seen in boutique hotels around the country.
Emerging concepts in both the hospitality and food are creating a buzz. Escondido Oaxaca features a new kind of luxury that focuses on simplicity and local traditional ingredients. Itanoní uses corn as its star ingredient, while Criollo is rooted in Oaxacan cooking techniques.
