Papel Amate, or handmade bark paper, is an art form of ancient Mesoamerica that still exists today. Otomi artisans in the Mexican state of Puebla craft the paper from mulberry or fig tree bark, then sell or trade the homemade paper to other indigenous groups for decoration. Most of our Traditional bark paintings are by Luis Cabrera Ortiz. Luis is a Nahua from the village of San Augustin Oapan, in the Rio Balsas river valley of Guerrero. Luis and his family have been painting scenes of traditional village life on handmade amate paper for three generations.
