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.

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 in high quality local craft, this store (which is located in two places in Cabo San Lucas) should be at the top of your list of places to visit.

Come home with something unique, handmade, and high quality. Very cool gallery. No pressure but Pablo was knowledgable and friendly. Prices are very very good.

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 to send us photos of similar sculptures available in the gallery. After several emails, we chose a replacement piece. This time it arrived safely and intact. Hugo was diligent in communicating with us to let us know the transport particulars every step of the way. HIs attention to detail was very reassuring.
We would not hesitate to purchase any of the exceptional original Mexican works of art from Arte de Origen, the next time we visit. Thank you Hugo!

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 upon our return to the states. Well packaged and well cared for.

Thank again, Hugo & Arte de Origen!!!
