These are all puros Chingones y Chingonas, Artist/ Designers and craftspeople, most of which we have met while on our journey as an independent brand or have had a good experience with their artwork (with a few exceptions). Most of them are from California (specifically Sacramento and the Bay), but most importantly they are doing social conscious work that helps inspire, empower and educate our comunidad. I hope this list helps you find a special gift for that perfect someone… (or yourself, we won’t judge). ¡Felices Fiestas! And Support Local Independent Creatives.


P.S. Feel free to add any Creatives/Artist/Designers and craftspeople in the comment box that you know. I am sure there are a lot of others out there doing great things.
