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.

“Beautiful gallery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Love this gallery!! They represent various artists in Mexico and the pieces they carry are beautiful, creative, fun, colorful, interesting & varied. We just purchased a collage paper piece of a charming street of colorful buildings. We chose the frame color which was custom made. Our dealings with Pablo at the gallery in the Puerto Paraiso mall in downtown Cabo was a pleasure from start to finish. He stayed in touch, from sending us a photo showing us the finished piece ready to be packed & shipped, to staying on top of tracking it's progress after leaving the gallery until arriving at our home. Don't miss this great gallery!

“honeymoon memory”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We went to Mexico for our honeymoon thanks to our wedding wishing well, however we wanted to purchase a piece of art that represented our trip that we could appreciate as a memory back home. We were so happy once we stumbled across Arte de Origen in Los Cabos, the pieces were one off, the service was friendly and the shipping to Aus was reliable and easy. The only hard part was choosing which piece we wanted to buy!! Thanks for everything Carlo...

“Best kept secret in Cabo...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

I have been visiting this store for the past 5 years, always wanting to purchase a fine piece of art. And I finally did! I purchased a tapestry and they shipped it the the U.S. and it arrived in excellent condition. My husband built the frame from the instructions that Arte de Origen provided via e-mail. Customers are free to browse the store for as long as they wish with no pressure from the sales staff although they remain available to answer any questions. The service was excellent. I can't wait to go back but I just found out that I can purchase online now. If you have the opportunity, you must go to this store!

“Amazing and Unique...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Experience and artwork! Loved the story and process behind all the pieces. The service was exceptional and Pablo is about the nicest guy you could ever meet. He took the time to tell us about the history of the art and the process for each piece we were interested in. We purchased a worry doll on this trip, but will definitely be planning another trip back soon to pick out larger pieces for our house. Can't wait!
