In a world that's constantly racing, we're taking a moment to appreciate the unhurried pace of creation inspired by the artisanal traditions of San Miguel de Allende. As we step into 2024, let's delve into the essence of slow living embodied by the handmade, sustainable treasures of Stray Dog Designs.
Savoring the Pace
In San Miguel de Allende, time dances to a different rhythm. In our workshop and within our artisans' homes, the art of crafting unfolds gradually. Here, precision isn't rushed but measured in each paper inch meticulously cut by a paper mache artist and in each deliberate strike of the hammer by an ironworker.
Generations have woven their legacies into these crafts, passing down the torch of expertise and artistry. For over 25 years, Stray Dog has honored these traditions by collaborating with local artisans, transforming their time-honored techniques into the vibrant, unique pieces that adorn your home.
Honoring Every Detail
In the realm of handcrafted excellence, it's the minutiae that matter most. At Stray Dog Designs, our artisans infuse every piece with meticulous care and attention to detail. From the gentle curve of a hand-carved silhouette to the precise application of vibrant hues, each stroke, bend, and brushstroke is a testament to our commitment to perfection. It's not just about crafting furniture and décor; it's about sculpting narratives, infusing soul, and ensuring that every detail resonates with artistry and grace. Our dedication to the craft echoes through every knot, brush, and stroke, ensuring that each piece that graces your home is a masterpiece of mindful creation.

At Stray Dog Designs, we celebrate the blend of contemporary aesthetics with age-old techniques, meticulously handcrafting each piece.
