The Story of the Loose-Necks…

Every year in late summer, mainly July and August, in a very remote region in the southernmost part of Mexico, the limoncillo fruit falls to the ground and thus starts the making of the Loose-Necks!​​

Local farmers and indigenous peoples of the area gather the pits by baskets and lay them out to dry, then sand them to smooth the surfaces and flatten the bottoms of the round pits. They use a pick and scoop to clean out the inside of the hard core then they carve the head out of real wood and individually hand paint each and every one of the heads.

The painted heads are then attached through the inside of the pit with a hook-needle and thread. The thread goes through the top and is pasted down to the outside of the pit. They then attach the legs and tail. The entire body is then coated and after they’re completely dry, the real artwork begins. Each and every Loose-Neck is hand painted to perfection. They use only non lead-based paint, which we ship to the select artisans to assure the highest quality.
