Fourth Bazaar of Art and Alternative Design

The bazaar’s end is to be a platform to empower and promote the talent of young independent designers, providing both a showcase for recognition and promotion of their work and also a selling spot for them.
The bazaar will showcase over 50 different brands in many branches of design and creativity; many of them will be showing/selling for the first time in San Miguel.
The bazaar in its fourth edition brings a completely different selection from previous times: To mention some of the fresh faces (mainly coming from Mexico City, Guadalajara and León) there are intellectual illustrations by Búho, Mazahua indigenous fair trade project Minahua, Dogart silk-printed shirts, Azure jewelry in sterling silver, spiritual charms by Boj Malva, whimsical lamps made with vintage phones Lamparófonos, felting by Alkistis, Don Barbosa jewelry, Daniela Pruneda ribbons and sterling accessories, hand knits by Tía Meme, Bullbots art toys, Heart Attack and Los Hipersensibles t-shirts, notebooks by MayrOvi, precious Cocolli Kaleidoscopes, leather goods by Kiin,updated textiles by Jade Mexican Designs and many more cool things by over 50 different talented designers.
Such great design will be complemented by brands of botanical cosmetics like Basatti or Reijan skincare, artisanal bread by Paraíso Bakery, vegan cosmetics by Ere Studio, succulent Oaxaca-style tamales, coffee break space, delicious mescal by Mezcal Artesanal and live performances by talented local musicians.
Let next weekend (July 26-27) become an opportunity to see the newest proposals and trends in fashion, jewelry, toys, shoes, lamps, bags and more. We invite you to support these young, independent and brave creators by purchasing their work and allow them to keep growing and expanding the fair trade commerce.
