Virtual visit to our Mexican Folk Art store in Monterrey, Mexico. 

 Our history dates back to 1950 when Humberto Arellano, nephew of the former Education Minister Moises Saenz founded Carapan, a Mexican folk art gallery located in a colonial house at the core of downtown Monterrey, Mexico.

 Since then, we have had the opportunity to serve and to share a part of Mexico with our visitors. We have had the honor to receive chiefs of state, painters, scientists, poets, intellectuals, diplomats, business people, musicians, among others.
