About us

Un Pueblo was founded by Eric Young and Erika Barrios Young to bring the beauty of handcrafted Mexican art to you and your home. Our initial company, Model Metalworks, Inc. was created in the year 2000 and we still smile when we think of that day. After years of work, we expanded our product line and today we are proud to present Un Pueblo.

Our mission is to enrich the quality of life of artisans while respecting the traditions handed down through generations. We are a family business devoted to the creation of opportunity and prosperity. We stand by the quality of all of our handmade Mexican art pieces, and we are certain that you will appreciate their outstanding beauty as we do.

Un Pueblo’s online store features handmade baskets and metal ware which are both stunning and functional. They are wonderful gift items for any occasion. Currently our online gift store ships to any of the lower 48 states in the United States. We invite you to browse our catalog and experience the splendor of Mexican tradition.
