Today in #SeamosMexicanos we present to you: Diana, founder of Casta Artesana, located in Mérida Yucatán and tells us her story:
"Hello! Diana Villegas greets you, I am an Industrial Engineer by profession and this experience began in 2012, when I became a happy mother and firmly decided to leave a professional career of 6 years in the Supply Chain area (in the which was going quite well for me); for enjoying every stage of my precious newborn girl. Although Casta Artesana was founded on May 3, 2019, during this time gap I started with my signature accessories brand: MANNYAB complements; which was well received and the springboard to form Casta Artesana… as well as welcoming my second beloved girl.
Casta Artesana was born in the Barrio de Santiago, Centro (just behind the church) with 10 local brands, currently having 2 branches within the wonderful city of Mérida (Santiago & Fracc. Las Américas). We collaborate directly with artisans to create exclusive designs under the Casta Artesana brand that maintain the essence of our Mexican roots as well as local brands in the food area that maintain their name. Our motto, “We honor our traditions”, is very important to us, as I firmly believe that the best way to achieve this; it is being job generators that activate our economy and worthy exponents of the ancestral knowledge that our artisans share with us in each of their pieces created in a very unique and special way. Therefore, when you visit Casta Artesana you will find a wonderful team made up of artisans, local brands and my incredible support team who will welcome you every day with a big smile to be part of the beautiful community: CASTA ARTESANA.
