About us

Chalupa... Wait, what?

Chalupa Store offers unique and carefully curated items for everyday life, crafted by designers and artisans from Mexico.

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.

Founders

We are a group who are passionate about both design and our country. We want to share Mexico with the world through the work of talented designers and local artisans.

What 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.

Why?

We believe that the every day objects which surround our life should be meaningful and a celebration of our lives; making our home cosy and telling beautiful stories about the hands and hearts involved in their making. The sharing of these stories is our philosophy.
