Have you heard of Mercado L.A.?
They specialize in one of a kind custom embroidered trucker hats and pillow cases with designs straight from the beautiful pueblito de San Antonino, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Co-founder Luis Octavio created Mercado LA last May when he discovered these intricate and beautifully designed patterns were only available in the form of women’s dresses. On a business trip in Oaxaca for his other proyecto Tamarindo Podcast , Luis took the opportunity to cut out the middle man and physically hunt down the talented mujeres in their hometown by literally knocking on peoples’ doors to find out where he could find the skilled artisans. Talk about dedicación!
Each product is hand-made made con amor y atención from las mujeres de San Antonino and each product is 100% unique, there are no duplicates out there!
Mercado LA guarantees that each artisan gets 25% profit from each sale of their own embroidered design. We fully support companias como MercadoLA that give back to their own roots and community. Shop MercadoLA today and support the artists from communities like San Antonino, Oaxaca.
