“Craftsmanship names an enduring, basic human impulse, the desire to do a job well for its own sake.”
― Richard Sennett, The Craftsman
Studio José de la O is a creative design agency that, among other things, is involved in several social projects in different communities in Mexico, with a goal to create positive impact through product design and craft.
delaO is a design brand created to make available to everyone beautiful products developed under 3 different design social initiatives; where 6 families of craftsmen benefit from you buying and using their products.
Every product in this collection, has 3 main values:
• Functionality: We like our products to work. For a long time.
• Simplicity: We like our products to be as simple and honest as they can be. No unnecessary elements.
• Tradition: We like our products to tell the story of where they came from.
By applying these values we design products that you will buy only once but use forever.
We make sure that the materials that our craftsmen and craftswomen use speak for themselves. Honest, raw materials that can evolve with time, changing and growing with its owner. Every product is intended to be part of your everyday life.
