Las Manos Mágicas

folk art and fine things


A view of our former 15 year gallery location in Houston, Texas..



After 22 years, we have closed our physical gallery location and our folk art, jewelry, and textiles are now available solely online.  Please go to our FOR SALE pages to view our outstanding collection.

In Houston, Texas since 1971, we have assembled an eclectic array of fine folk art, handcrafted jewelry, and fine ethnic textiles. We hunt down exceptionally well-designed and executed objects.
Our specialty areas are Mexican and Guatemalan masks, indigenous textiles from Guatemala and India, and classic Mexican silver jewelry. We work with recognized artisans from all over Mexico and Guatemala and choose from their best pieces. We are also constantly on the lookout for outstanding young artists who will be the maestros of the next generation.

We also sell ethnic textiles from Guatemala, Mexico, India, Uzbekistan, Bolivia, the San Blas Islands (molas) and a few other places.

For your personal adornment, we carry an outstanding selection of finely handcrafted jewelry by classic Mexican silversmiths. And we exclusively offer the chic beaded necklaces of gallery owner Madeleine Crozat-Williams.

Please note that we are proud to practice fair trade and pay our artists fair prices for their work. When you purchase a work of art from us, you are not only bringing home a piece of beauty but you are also contributing to the survival of artists and art forms throughout the world.

We will be happy to provide you with further information about our merchandise.

We all thank you for your patronage! ENJOY!!
