This handmade magnet with José Guadalupe Posadas famous Calavera de Madero motif adds some earthy vibes to your refrigerator, gas heater and other metallic surfaces. A strong magnetic layer ensures a secure hold while handmade Papel Amate paper spreads some vintage flavour in the front. Up to the final edge smoothing, this magnet has been entirely manufactured in a small family business in the city of Puebla. Any slight imperfections just underline the charming character of these unique pieces.
Papel Amate is handmade paper from tree bark which originates from the Otomi Indians in Central Mexico where it is still produced according to ancient traditions. First, the bark of the Mori tree is cooked into pieces, then the fibers are torn apart and straightened out on a wooden board with a stone until the surface is felted. After the rays of sunlight have helped with the drying process, the Papel Amate is printed with classic Mexican vintage motifs. In the last step, the paper edges are lightly flamed, perfecting the original character and patina of these charming unique pieces.
