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. « less

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.

From Pablo's respectful and patient help in selecting our made-to-order purchase, demonstrating... More

We visit Cabo yearly....and I always stop by the store and find something new and interesting. Lovely gallery, delightful staff and interesting art pieces create the trifecta for this boutique. I have had pieces shipped home and Hugo stays involved to ensure that everything arrives safely and meets expectations.

I visit Cabo san Lucas once a year and never miss an opportunity to visit this store. There is never any pressure to buy, and some years I just look... but this year I bought a wonderful muneca made of paper mache and some fabric. I look forward to visiting again next winter. For those of you who are interested... More

In October 2013, my husband and I purchased a glass sculpture from Hugo at Arte de Origen in Cabo San Lucas. The sculpture was fairly large and delicate and had to be shipped to our home in Canada. Unfortunately, the original sculpture that we ordered was damaged during shipping. Hugo notified us of this delay by email and promptly offered... More

Let's keep it simple here: 1. Visit Arte de Origen if you're a lover of unique, hand made, exclusive indigenous art work. 2. Go straight to Hugo. Very professional artisan who really gets to know 'what you're looking for'. What a great experience while in Cabo San Lucas. 3. Internationally insured shipping is standard with your art work. Arrived promptly... More
