As three Mexican-British sisters who grew up surrounded by two diverse cultures rich in history, we felt a responsibility to build a bridge between our two countries; and what better way to do it than through design. Our lifetime friend Mariana, being a creative and talented photographer, shared our ideas and vision and came on board.
We believe passionately in Mexico and its exquisite culture and creativity. We want to show the world the vibrant and sophisticated work made by contemporary designers as well as supporting the artisan community all around the country. For these reasons we created MIM.
At a time in which interest in art and design is growing and when consumers are looking for unique pieces with a story behind them, MIM functions as a tool for Mexican designers, creating a connection between them and Europe.
“We are proud of our Mexican heritage and want to show the world that Mexican design is sophisticated, captivating and world-class!”
