KazMexico is all about bringing Mexican traditions to the rest of the world through our wide variety of products. We also, through our blog, are hoping to give our customers elements of these traditions to understand why we have such a passion for Mexico, the culture and the people.
Traditional Architecture: Mexico's architecture comes in a great range of styles and ages, ranging from Aztec ruins to 500-year old Spanish homes and churches to modern glass and steel offices and hotels. There are four types of architecture shown in Mexico: Prehispanic, Colonial, Republican, and Modern Contemporary.
Aztec Tradition: The aztec people were ethnic groups of central Mexico and dominated a large part of Mesoamerica from the 14th to 16th centuries. Often the term "Aztec" refers exclusively to the Mexica people of Tenochtitlan situated on an island in Lake Texcoco. The Aztecs of this time are mostly remembered to this day for their religious beliefs involving human sacrifice and their highly functioning and innovative society in their time.
Talavera Pottery: Talavera pottery production dates back to the 16th century in the town of Puebla, where the best Talavera is still created to this day. It was brought to Mexico during the beginning of the colonial times. It is a mixture of Italian, Spanish and Mexican techniques to create a highly individual look that all can recognise.
Artistic legends: Mexico is known for its culture filled with colour and art. Many of the most famous artists come from Mexico, such as Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and José Clemente Orozco. Art from Mexico is known for its bright colours and religious influence.
