Lanii started as a collaboration among three friends (Sara Lopez, Sofia Sampayo, and Anna Michelle) who share a desire to develop and create products that combine art and functionality. It’s a small enterprise that focuses on promoting innovative local handcrafts of Oaxaca and other regions of Mexico.
Lanii’s objective is to inspire new perspectives on handcrafts, making them contemporary without diminishing the traditional artistic processes by which they are made. The crafts include embroidery, basket-weaving, fine jewelry, ceramic, rugs, black and red clay, and much more.
