Regina Pozo, founder and creative director of Txt.ure, lives and works in Mexico City and is something of a design prodigy (an art history graduate of the Universidad Iberoamericana, she was named head of the Archivo Diseno y Arquitectura at age 23 and profiled in T Magazine).
Her latest venture involves reviving the lost art of tule weaving in Mexico, launched via a Kickstarter campaign. “The aim is to identify lost fragments of Mexican design history, as well as fostering and adapting historical values and crafts,” according to the company’s manifesto. “We consider ourselves a collaborative design practice and conceive design in itself to be a vehicle for social transformation.”
The first collection comprises six pieces, from a small stool to a two-seater sofa. The line can be ordered through NY company Luteca (see Elevated Mexican Furniture for the World Market). Contact Luteca directly for pricing and ordering information.
