The Ecoalebrije Artisan Association was established in 2005 by a group of 18 artisan families in Arrazola, a small rural community near Oaxaca, Mexico. The Ecoalebrijes Artisan Association was formed as a collective group, with an elected board of directors. The association works to preserve and develop the art of the alebrije. Artisans actively seek opportunities to promote and sell their work, as well as the work of other organization members. Members also work to contribute to the economic viability of life in small Mexican communities through a local and culturally valuable art form.

The Artisan Association develops and promotes the natural resources of the local environment through ecologically sustainable practices. Since 2006, the Ecoalebrijes Artisan Association has been a host to the annual Oaxaca Intercambio with San Jose State University’s Health Science Department.
