The backstory

IMG_2963 (1).PNG

Stampworthy owes much of its inspiration to the indigenous culture of Oaxaca. The city is a sensory explosion - from the rainbow Otomi fabrics I’ve used for my furniture to the smokey mezcal I’ve guzzled - not to mention rich in a unique history not found anywhere else.

It’s why I keep going back.

Earlier this year, the first Stampworthy group traveled to Oaxaca for a deep dive into the markets, the natural wonder Hierve el Agua, and artisan pueblos surrounding the city.

It sold out and went so well, we’re doing it de nuevo. You are invited to join Stampworthy, (and food, textile, and culture enthusiasts from across the US and Mexico) to join a genuine Oaxacan experience.

Some of the highlights include:

  • a visit to a ceramicist’s home studio in a neighboring town
