Mérida was founded in 1542 by Francisco de Montejo “el Mozo” (the son), and built on the site of the ancient Maya city T’ho, meaning “city of five hills.” T’ho was the center of Mayan culture and activity in the Yucatan region. Before the arrival of the Spanish, the ancient city’s boasted five main pyramids. With the arrival of the Spanish and the conquering of the area, the 5 pyramids were destroyed and their ruins used in the construction of Merida’s cathedral and other important buildings.
Today, with a population of some 950,000 people, the town of Mérida is the capital of the Mexican State of Yucatán and the largest city of the Yucatán Peninsula. The city is also the municipal seat of the Municipality of Mérida, which includes the city and the areas around it.
It's from these areas and region of the Yucatan where our Mexican hammocks and serapes are made. We work with several hundred familes in the local Mayan communities and provide their handmade artisan products directly to you.
