This season, Mariposa celebrates 35 years of our partnership with all who have enjoyed our commitment to the art of craft through the years.
As an appreciative tribute, we’ve invited even more artists from around the world to set stylish tables–from cozy to cosmopolitan – and add exquisite accents for the home. You’ll have all you need for spirited holiday gatherings, or just a simple dinner in front of the fire with family and friends.
Mariposa is proud to be an industry leader, creating unique gift and tableware from recycled materials for more than three decades. As we continue on our adventure, we raise a glass to all of you who have traveled with us... and extend a heartfelt welcome to the next generation that shares our commitment to the marriage of sustainability and high design!
The search for skilled artisans that characterized Mariposa’s early days remains in our DNA. I remember driving around Mexico in a camper with my sister, and sometimes solo, listening to my cassette tapes as the miles slipped past! As you page through this catalog, you’ll see how that fascination with travel continues—minus the camper!
Over the years, Mariposa’s offerings have expanded from the signature sand-cast metals crafted by the premier eco-chic producer in Mexico, to dozens of other natural textures and patterns articulated in ceramics, refined recycled glassware and sustainably harvested woods from Italy, France, Spain, Turkey—and even here in the USA.
Paging through the 2018 Introductions, you'll see a dramatic shift in style, scale and materials.
The distinguished new category called “Luxe” features serveware in metal, glass and ceramics, all in unique textures and finishes. “Essentials” emerge with a fresh, contemporary look. All result from what began as a youthful endeavor across borders that evolved into what Mariposa is today—an international passion project and a harbor for beautiful craftsmanship.
