People & Places- Alma Mexicana

Nothing makes me happier then when someone brings the love they have for their culture and connects it to a business. That’s exactly what Carla Esquivel did when she created her boutique Alma Mexicana which translates to Mexican Soul. When I went along to her Paddington store last Friday for a special Frida Kahlo night, it didn’t take long to see just how much heart Carla had injected into her business. For starters each piece is designed and made by Native Mexicans so you’re not only getting something authentic but you’re also supporting a local initiative. I don’t know about you, but I have become to tired of seeing mass produced prints and accessories made in China but clearly inspired by certain cultures.  Looking around Alma Mexicana it felt as though I could have been in Mexico, and I was so inspired by the beautiful colours and textures that lined the walls. This is the kind of retail experience you sadly don’t get online these days, and it’s why I encourage you all to make the trip to Alma Mexicana so you too can feel the soul of such a vibrant country.
