About The Designer
ONORA was founded by Maggie Galton, an art historian turned designer from New York and Maria Eladia Hagerman, a Mexican born designer living in Los Angeles.
They were brought together by their shared passion for Mexico’s cultural richness and their belief in applying innovation to Mexico’s rapidly fading artisanal sector with the final goal of preserving this important component of Mexico’s identity.
Together they have formed ONORA – a brand dedicated to the creation of high end, hand crafted textiles and home accessories in collaboration with Mexican artisans.
Each exquisite piece created by ONORA expresses the core principles at the base of the brand: the strong commitment to social impact, the profound respect for tradition and craftsmanship and the spirit of collaboration with artisans.
About The Technique
The art of rayado is a popular technique in Olinalá, used to decorate objects with great effect. The surface is given two coats of lacquer in contrasting colours. The designed is then created in relief using a thorn or needle creating an elegant and beautiful effect.
