Guatemalan native, from the city of Antigua Guatemala, I opened my shop in Paris in 2002 and move to Montmartre in 2007. May aim was to create a authentic ethnical and fair small market like the “tiendas” (the shops) we fin in our countries. All my objects tell the stories of popular culture and traditions from Mexico and Guatemala as I lived it, all my objects have an history and an origin.
I builted a very strong relationship with producers and craftpersons which whom I work, it allows me to guarantee the high level of quality and at the same time their originality : more or less 25% of my collection is exclusive design and creation I designed myself. I’m working now with around 50 craftpersons or carft communities from both countries.
Furthermore, a “tienda” is also a place of life and human sharing. That’s why I attend or organize each year events and meetings aroung culture of Mexico and Guatemala : the day of the deads, plays of mexican loteria, expos of creators who make objects or accessories inspired by culture and traditions of our countries.
I launched Esquipulas in 2002 to share my passion for the richness of popular culture of my country, Guatemala, and his big neighbour, Mexico. I wanted to create a special selection always unique of the most improbables products which are part of our daily life. Also, I'm working with my niece, Lucia, because we have a strong family tradition.
Curiosites addict I roam streets and markets of Mexico and Guatemala looking for the unique object I will love ! There I fill my eyes and my heart by colours and memories of warmful sharing moments with craftpersons and unique people of my culture that I loved so much. Working with my aunt which is always a challenge 🙂
