Totomoxtle is a new veneer material made with husks of heirloom Mexican corn. Ranging from deep purples, to soft creams, Totomoxtle showcases the wealth of diversity of the native corns of Mexico which are naturally colourful and are essential for the rich gastronomy of the country.
But this project goes far beyond simply aesthetics. Totomoxtle focuses on regenerating traditional agricultural practices in Mexico, and creating a new craft that generates income for impoverished farmers and promotes the preservation of biodiversity for future food security.
