Limited pre-order window for Hand-beaded Littons from Arte Marakame begins Monday 8/30!
Go-live time: 8/30 at 10 AM Mountain Time.
Kidrobot is honored to present our newest collaboration with the Mexican artist collective Arte Marakame, featuring the Baby Labbit Littons! Available only here on Kidrobot.com, these commissioned pre-orders will be micro-beaded by hand by an indigenous artist of the Wixarika (Huichol) community in Mexico. There are 10 colorways to choose from, and the selected artist will then create a new one-of-a-kind piece reflecting the rich history and cultural symbolism of the Wixarika. The exact design is left to the vision of the artist.
Kidrobot was founded on the idea of bringing art to life from all types of artistry across the globe. We are excited to give Kidrobot collectors the opportunity to pre-order this next series of handcrafted Litton art pieces depicting imagery of Wixarika history and culture, each telling a different story.
Each one of a kind Kidrobot Arte Marakame Litton comes with an official Certificate of Authenticity with the following:
Photo, title and size of each piece.
Name and signature of the artist.
Place where the art piece was created.
Signature and stamped seal of Marakame.
Approximate dimensions of each Litton:1.6″ L x 1.25″ W x 1.385″ H
Be prepared to jump on these truly unique cultural offerings as soon as the pre-order window opens at 10 AM MT on Monday 8/30. These are commissioned pre-orders: due to the time to create these pieces by the artists, the shipping time will vary. Estimated delivery to customers is Q4 2021.
