Echeri International is an active part of the healing and reclaiming process of the native communities from the turtle island, raising their voices and putting them first, which is their rightful place as the living guardians of our ancestral knowledge. 

Echeri promotes the fair trade of Arte Indigena Mexicano, focusing on the rebozo as a garment that holds power and empowers people. We share and teach a radical and constant revolution through art, creativity, education, resilience, self-healing, ancestral wisdom, science, sustainability and mindfulness.

Our engines are powered by the Purhepecha community, including femmes, children, people of color, minorities and everyone that feels the need to be an ally to help in the creation of a new society and is willing to participate in this paradigm shift. We create opportunities and resources for our communities for their own development, giving them the freedom to do what’s best for them”

Many of us feel trapped by the patterns and cycles of our lives and do not feel that we have the capacity to make an impact with our choices and resources. Once we remove our blinders and look from a broader perspective, we can all make meaningful changes in our homes, businesses and properties

ECHERI SHOP

For the indigenous artists that partner with Echeri, their work is more than decoration: it is the lifeblood that sustains their families and carries their proud culture into the 21st century. All items are completely one-of-a-kind and handmade, purchased through personal relationships in the indigenous communities of Mexico.
