About Us

Equipales

The word "Equipal" originates from the Indian Nahuatl language "icpalli" meaning chair for gods. It is known that this type furniture was used by the Aztec higher class society even before the Spanish arrived in Mexico. Now a days, this furniture is made from various types of woods and leather. Because natural leather is used, it sometimes appear with slight imperfections such as spots. This makes it difficult at times to match two pieces, something that makes it unique and appealing to some people. This type of furniture is widely used in Mexico in homes as well as in restaurants and resorts. I am sure that anybody who has ever traveled to Mexico has sat down at one time or another on one of these chairs and has enjoyed a cool one or two. This furniture is very popular because of its versatility to enhance almost any decor indoors and outdoors. It requires very little maintenance. The equipale chair comes in both natural and stained finish. The stained ones come in different shades and they can also be painted in different colors. Regardless of which color you order, we are sure that you will enjoy them for a long time, as they have a long and durable life.

Talavera

 

Talavera pottery's origin comes from the Spanish Majolica ware originally produced in various Spanish towns. This type of pottery originated from the Italian Renaissance Majolica with a mixture of Moorish, Islam, and far eastern influences. This type of art was also brought to the New World by artisans and was first produced in the states of Puebla and Guanajuato. It is still being produced today by a handful of artisans much the same way as in the past. Each piece is hand painted and each artist uses their own design and colors.

 

Alebrijes

 

Animalitos is a term used for wood carvings done by a handful of carvers in the state of Oaxaca. This type of art has become very popular within the last 40 years and it has captured the imagination of collectors and enthusiasts the world over. They are mainly made from balsa wood and carvers are able to form anything from a simple animal figure to a mythical figure originated from the carver's imagination and superstitions.
