Graziano & Gutierrez is a Mexican-American work-wear & apparel brand working in collaboration with artisan textile makers in Oaxaca & Chiapas, Mexico.
Their goal is focused on repurposing hand-woven Mexican textiles commonly used for upholstery or tablecloths to give them a new, unique, and personal use. G&G also aims to create pieces that preserve and share the incredibly rich heritage of Mexico, while also providing a platform for the artisans’ work to shine.
Looking to have the most earth and human-friendly solutions to every aspect of their products, all garments are hand-made from beginning to end. The fabrics are handwoven on pedal looms by artisan communities in Oaxaca and Chiapas, Mexico and then each garment is hand-cut and sewn in G&G's studio. Only environmentally and socially sustainable fabrications are used, which include both handwoven cotton fabrics from the artisans they work with, but also compostable natural fiber textiles like organic cotton and hemp.
Graziano & Gutierrez are currently partnered with two artisan communities in Mexico from Teotitlan del Valle, Oaxaca and San Andres Larrainzar, Chiapas
