The Ticul bowl 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, like these Mexican pottery bowls. 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.
