About the Brand
Ayres is: Joana Valdez, industrial designer from the Yucatan in Mexico and Karim Molina, textile designer from Caracas, Venezuela.
Together we design simple, utilitarian objects and furniture with a primal aesthetic. Our basic shapes are unique and reminiscent of prehistoric utensils.
The beauty of our materials, designs, and quality all stem from our native historical roots, both natural and primitive. We work with natural material like Guayacán and Tzalam wood, volcanic stones, marbles and natural leather. Our processes are completely artisanal, allowing every piece to be unique, and a real exploration of new techniques and materials.
We work in various states of Mexico, always looking for a balanced exchange between the artisans and our design studio. This collaboration helps us create objects 100% handmade using high quality materials and fine craftsmanship.
Our philosophy: we all deserve special objects that tell a story.
