About Casa Xali
In Spanish, casa means home, a place where you're surrounded by the people and things you love. The most fundamental form of a casa is your body, or your cuerpo.
Our bodies "house" our minds, support and sustain us, and empower us to take on the physical world. They're our most valuable possessions and should be adorned with beautiful accessories that convey our identities.
In the Aztec language Nàhuatl, Xali (sha-lee) means sand, and represents movement, flow, and a connection to mother earth.
We started Casa Xali to preserve traditional Mexican mastery, and re-introduce these handmade crafts to the modern world.
By collaborating with local artisans, our mission is to start a chain of positive events bridging small pueblos to big cities, that empowers these communities to share and preserve their unique craftsmanship.
In Spanish there's a saying; aportar un granito de arena which can be interpreted as, "make a positive impact, no matter how small."
Casa Xali is our granito de arena (our grain of sand).
All Casa Xali items are handmade in Mexico by Artisans Maria, Luis, Flor, Ani, Juan, Antonio, and Jeremias, get to know each unique craft and artisanal process.
5% of all sales are donated to RAICES, an organization that defends and fights for the rights of immigrants and refugees.
