About Aprylle - ArtMexico


Aprylle Stuart founded ArtMexico back in 2015, after travelling extensively around Mexico and falling principally in love with the rainbow-coloured Artesanias, but also the wildly beautiful and diverse nature and incredible climate!

Aprylle is now an expero of papel picado (Mexican bunting) and other artesanias and works with Artisans all over Mexico to create this amazing ArtMexico collection of authentic handmade Mexican fiesta decorations, traditional Mexican wedding decorations and home decorations. All our Mexican artesanias are available wholesale for shops and events. View Shop.

Aprylle has now been living in Mexico for 11 years with her Mexican partner Jorge and Mexican baby Rafael.


The artisans that we work with are the soul of ArtMexico, they make us who we are, and we would be nothing without them. We have a profound respect for their hard work and for the beautiful products that they create. We have long-standing relationships with many of them, spanning almost a decade.

Whenever we can, we support them by paying them upfront to buy new equipment, materials or to help them expand. We have even helped one of our artists to buy their own property and a truck to transport their ceramic skulls.


ArtMexico is best known for supplying el Jimador, Tequila Patrón, Monster Energy, Jose Cuervo, Sol and more big names with show stopping custom-made bunting (with their logos on the flags) plus other Mexican decorations for their branding events, Day of the Dead marketing activations and festival decor.

We also supplied the Brooklyn Museum with show stopping papel picado for their infamous Artists Ball. Google Spotlight Stories filled an entire ballroom with our papel picado for the launch of “Son of Jaguar” their 3D animated feature film. Christian Dior adorned their 2019 Cruise Collection unveil in Dubai with our all white traditional Mexican wedding flags.


After studying art & design at University Aprylle started out working in the film industry as a Props Maker making sets for big feature films. She then worked extensively in the media industry at the BBC and The Daily Telegraph as a Production Manager. It has to be noted that she was also a massive party animal too haha...maybe why she loves selling party decorations!

Then Aprylle went travelling…off to see the world and what adventures she could find! So to now to be settled in Mexico, happily her own boss, on the other side of the world, working with artists to make fiesta decorations for parties all over the planet…is a vivid and incredible dream!

The mix of her artistic background, high-stress production organisation skills and ex-party lover, makes ArtMexico the perfect, reliable place to come to for big events organisers, wedding planners, and festival designers, when looking for event decorations. We always get the decorations to the event on time, and manage all the shipping, customs and importation seamlessly.


Our papel picado is from both Puebla and Mexico City, our pom pom garlands are from Chiapas, our skulls are from Jalisco (but our artisans are actually from Guerrero), our placemats are from Coahuila, our papel mache is from Guanajuato…

Our artists and their families rely 100% from their craft. We support traditional age-old skills like papel picado cutting with a hammer and hundreds of differently shaped chisels, hand-weaving, and traditional painting. Every piece you buy helps preserve these Mexican traditions for the next generations.


ArtMexico works hard to minimise the environmental impact of our packaging. We use second-hand boxes wherever possible for shipping by freight. And are trying to move away from using plastic to biodegradable plastic, and choosing paper bags instead where possible for our product packaging. But the total transformation will take time.

We very much hope you love our colourful fiesta, home and wedding decorations, and we'd love yo to get in touch if you have any questions at all.

Love from Aprylle and the ArtMexico Team!
