Jicara Shell Candle Holder Set
$170.00|2 pieces|Made in Mexico
A “jícara” is a container made from the fruit of the Jícaro tree (Crescentia Cujete, commonly known as the Calabash Tree), native to Central and South America. For generations, indigenous artisans have crafted containers from the dried shell of the Jícaro fruit, with variations amongst cultures across the region. Following the Mayan tradition of jícara crafting and adding a contemporary touch of brass, Region has created this pair of candle holders in which past and present become future and tradition and contemporary meld into something truly unique and Mexican.

The Jicara Shell Candleholder Set takes inspiration from the Mayan crafts and culture of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Traditionally trained artisans made it by hand in collaboration with Region.
Region is a brand built on a passion for discovery and development, and is always seeking to redefine the known and highlight the unexpected.
They work closely with the highly skilled artisans who produce their pieces. By doing this, they create products that embody both tradition and contemporary culture.
As well as these influences, they like to infuse their pieces with a dash of the unexpected, with magical results. Region is passionate about their ethical and environmental responsibilities. Because of this, they work to ensure fair trade practices and sustainability goals.
Region’s latest collection explores the harshness of nature, the bounty of the earth’s resources and the wonder of ancient Mayan techniques to overcome the former and attain the latter. Many experts consider Maya art to be the most sophisticated and beautiful of any ancient New World culture. This is because there are many styles and techniques which distinguish Maya art from other MesoAmerican examples. By combining mythology, reality and a unique style, each piece tells a story. Popular Maya art forms included monumental architecture, stone sculptures, wood carvings, painted ceramics and stucco models. They also include complex fine jewelry made from precious metals and stones, and body decorations such as tattoos.
