Description: Arte de Origen is a company that produces and designs unique objects...
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.

The shop is loaded with all kinds/types of art - but don't think you are walking into an art gallery full of paintings. Some of the most unique presentations I have seen - all under one roof. We have started a menagerie of their papier-mâché animals. You can start a collection of their welded-up metal fish. Pretty expensive, so only... More

For the past several years on my visits to Cabo I make it a point to visit Arte de Origen. It is most unique. Each time I visit I find something to add to my collection. I now have 5 pieces in my collection. There is such variety. From artwork, sculptures to furiiture. You can even order a custom piece.... More

This store had so many unique authentic Mexican pieces. There are a lot of stores in Cabo that have the same stuff but this one is worth the time to visit. The owners are very nice and the prices are average.

This is a great little shop. We bought a piece for our beach house that will be one of a kind. Abdiel was friendly and very helpful, a pleasure to do business with him.

We went to Cabo on our honeymoon in July 2014. We waited patiently for our mirror to arrive prior to the hurricane, it never arrived. We then asked for our money back and received no response back. Magically it appeared 7 months later after going thru our back to try to get our money returned. Well ladies and gentlemen guess... More

I'd been eyeing the beautiful and original mirrors for 2 years. This year, I purchased one with worry dolls. The art pieces are beautiful and reasonably prices for the quality and originality. The store employees are delightful, kind and humble. I will make another purchase next year. The receipt gives the name of the artist, email info, etc. if you'd... More

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
