Sur Al Norte is dedicated to the support of Mexican craft and culture through fair trade practices. As we transition this website to a content based forum, you can see all of our items for sale at Sur Al Norte eBay Store . The items you see for sale on this site are somewhat outdated. Our efforts to keep our unique inventory up to date is concentrated on eBay

All of our products are purchased directly from the artisans or their families at a fair price. The crafts come from Oaxaca, Puebla, Guadalajara, Mexico City and Dolores Hidalgo. We specialize in Oaxacan black pottery, carved wood alebrijes, papel picado, talavera and other styles unique to Mexico.

A portion of our proceeds go to Compassion Without Borders , a California based organization that rescues dogs and other distressed animals from Mexico. Even if you don’t buy from us, please visit their website and donate what you can.
