This is San Pablito located in the northwest of the state of Puebla in central Mexico. The main economic activity here is crafts, especially the production of a paper called “Amate” made from the bark of a fig tree that grows in the area.
We are a manufacturing and export company of amate paper (cortex) made by hand, based in San Pablito, Puebla, Mexico. The indigenous peoples of this region are proud of the high quality of their products.
More than 2,000 families in the region are trained in amate paper production and could stay and stay on their land if your company succeeds with its dream of finding export markets for the product. It has been sold within Mexico, but the production capacity of San Pablito has surpassed the domestic market. OUR DIRECTOR Vicente Trejo Hernández grew up learning to play amate paper in his hometown of San Pablito, in the state of Puebla, Mexico. He helped his father and mother carry the jonote wood, boil it in large cauldrons and turn it into paper.
Vicente Trejo is a representative of the small communities in Puebla-Mexico, who has dedicated himself to serving his native land in search of a market for a handmade paper made from the pulp of the jonote tree (a tree of local growth and of rapid regeneration). Vicente Trejo Hernández, a naturalized US citizen, has worked for years to obtain an export license, register a bar code and pay stipulated Mexican and US taxes to pave the way for the export of this beautiful product. Sr. Hernandez has samples of the paper that comes in 28 different color tones and 10 different sizes; And it has photos of the production process.
Actualmente, la industria involucra a más de 2,000 familias en Puebla y su producto se vende en México, sin embargo, el mercado mexicano es demasiado pequeño para sostener a todas las familias que pueden producir
