The folk arts of Michoacán are centered in central western Mexico. Its origins can be traced back to the Purépecha Empire. The state has a wide variety of crafts, with the most important being the working of wood, copper, ceramics, and textiles. 

There is great support for artisans in the way of contests, fairs, and collective trademarks for certain wares (to protect against imitations), and today Michoacán handcrafts are featured in galleries throughout Mexico and the United States.
