MERCEDES SALAZAR

Colombian designer Mercedes Salazar returns with more tropical-infused, joyful tableware that, as always, celebrates local craft and materials. The structures of the bowls, platters, boxes, candlesticks, and more seen here are all hand-woven from Iraca palm by over 200 local artisan families, each skilled in ancestral techniques that have been passed down through generations. Then, her team of jewelers brings the pieces to life with vibrant motifs culled from nature, from leaves to palm trees and cherries.
