"La vida ofrece una magia especial para aquellos que se atreven a soñar."
Mestiza was established in 2004 by artists and entrepreneurs Lorena Almanza and Sugeiri Martinez, a creative and passionate duo with a love of all things vintage, mystical, and Latinx.
At Mestiza, Lorena and Sugeiri offer a unique selection of jewelry, clothing, accessories, housewares, stationery, and handmade local artisan goods. With a mixture of traditional and modern pieces, Sugeiri and Lorena curate a selection of unique Latinx products that celebrate their traditions and culture. Social consciousness is an integral part of their lives and this is why most artisan work is sourced directly from the makers or via Fair-Trade companies.
After a successful run at their first location at 1010 W. 18th Street, this duo closed their brick and mortal location to focus on an online platform and local art markets from 2009-2016.
Since reopening Mestiza in 2017 at their new location,1523 W. 18th Street, their mission has been to contribute to the vibrant Pilsen community and to encourage local artisans to start and grow their own brands.
Mestiza loves getting to know their customers and hopes that everyone leaves happy with personalized and excellent shopping experience.
Thank you for stopping by Mestiza!
