Type: Art Galleries, Shopping
Owner description: Arte de Origen is a company that produces and designs unique objects inspired on images from different Mexican and Latin- American cultures.We embody such images in; carpets, boxes, furniture, mirrors and sculptures, made integrally by hand. We mainly use, paper, fabrics, metal, paints, patinas and lacquer, thus insuring unique objects, finished with wax and pigments.We use the collagetechnique to perform our objects. This are: small pieces of paper cut by hand to create the layout of each object and leave the imprint of the hand made. In this sense, every object is unique and has been made based on this principal.In some pieces the technique is developed on objects with wooden base and in the case of the tapestries they are made on basis of Kraft paper. Painting is not used, but rather is work with the original colors of the paper. In all cases the objects are finished with the patinas wax technique.Enjoy the world of Arte de Origen.

I thought we did a review on Tripadvisor long ago, but doesn't look like it! Anyway, we had a beautiful tapestry made for us and delivered to our home in Summerland, B.C. a year or 2 ago. Pablo and his team were always in touch with us throughout the process, and delivered exactly what we requested! They are an honest... More

Arte de Origen has a wonderful collection of works from local artists. We browsed happily for close to a hour, while Pablo made us feel at home. After we purchased two mirrors that caught our eye, they made shipping super easy and convenient.

Do not miss it! To think that everything you see in the store is made in their factory in Cabo San Lucas. It is the first place I go to when you coming to town. There art is vivid and truly unique. I never leave empty-handed. In my estimation it is a must see.

Neat little store with unique works by regional artists. Vivid colors and reasonably priced. Off the Main Street so look carefully.

We happened upon this place while on vacation in Cabo and were impressed by the beauty of the pieces on display. We ended up purchasing two large pieces to be shipped to our home. We were told it would be shipped in 3-4 weeks. After multiple e-mail correspondence, many of them unanswered, it took 10 weeks for shipment to occur.... More

On the 1st floor of the mall there are a few galleries but this one drew us in to the beautiful artistry. We met Hugo & he explained the wonderful paper collage technique on the mirrors, wood furniture & craft paper tapestries. Hugo was able to securely rolled & wrap up a lovely piece for the flight home. Highly recommend... More

My wife and I visited because of all the great reviews on trip advisor. Its a nice shop but it had very little variety and nothing of interest for me. Our visit lasted no more than a couple of minutes. Obviously you need to be into the crafts they carry.
