Totomoxtle is a new veneer material made with husks of heirloom Mexican corn. Ranging from deep purples, to soft creams, Totomoxtle showcases the wealth of diversity of the native corns of Mexico which are naturally colorful and are essential for the rich gastronomy of the country. 

Totomoxtle developed by Fernando Laposse, is a surfacing veneer made with native Mexican corn husks that are naturally colorful. The husks are flattened and glued by hand onto fiberboard and card to reinforce them. These are size limitations because of the dimensions of the average corn leaf, but small veneer sheets can be sawed or laser cut to make marquetry.
