Chalupa... Wait, what?

Our name doesn’t exactly refer to food. In fact, the word “chalupa” goes a long way back in our history. Once upon a time, when Mexico was a mysterious land surrounded by water and pyramids, the Chalupa was the boat that the Aztecs, our country’s last native civilization before the Spanish Conquest, used to navigate along the Great City of Tenochtitlan’s channels, transporting food and flowers to sell around the city.That is exactly what we do now. We navigate across continents, bringing the best of Mexican design to your hands.

Mexico lindo

We select New Mexican Design that respects our traditions, honors craftsmanship and tells a story.

Designer + Artisan.

Since we started this project, we have been searching for designers that are collaborating directly with artisans. The purpose? Give a new and fresh idea to what “Made in Mexico” means.

Thanks to this collaboration, designers transmit to artisans modern life needs. At the same time, artisans teach young designers the techniques and craftsmanship from their region.

Using this scheme of local manufacture, we ensure that products are made with the best quality and aesthetics

Preserving our cultural legacy

In Mexico, we have an amazingly rich number of artisanal techniques; all part of our cultural heritage.

By encouraging the production and fair commercialization of Mexican products,  we help preserve this legacy. At the same time, we create greater opportunities and better working conditions for our artisans.

 

We care about the origin, the process, and the people behind each item.


Crafted from basalt stone, the San Lucas line is hand-made by the master artisan Ignacio García and designed by Aldo Álvarez Tostado.

 

Linamé is handmade using the traditional technique of the sarape from Saltillo. This beautiful piece is the result of the collaboration between the talented designer Daniel Valero and the master artisan Rubén Tamayo.

 

BON Tealight votive is crafted from recycled glass and hand-blown in a traditional workshop in Hidalgo. This beautiful object is designed by David Pompa and handmade by the artisan Vicente Villagrán.

What do we do?

We carefully select beautiful items of contemporary design that are blended with traditional Mexican craftsmanship.All of our collections are made with the highest quality materials, are aesthetically beautiful, and are manufactured through sustainable processes.

Our goal is to deliver a unique and socially responsible shopping experience. With every purchase you make, you support emerging designers and local artisans who are preserving Mexico’s craftsmanship and legacy.

 
 


With your help

We will expand our online platform to have a prominent and greater online presence in international markets.

 We will develop our online store so we can sell our products in Japan, Mexico, and the United States.

As a result, we will be able to collaborate with more artisans and designers.
