HI! My name is Francesca and I am half of Casa Bríxe (BREE-hey) along side my husband John. We are husband and wife team based in San Diego, California. Being Mexican, I have always been passionate about sharing the art and culture of Mexico in a true and ethical way. Mexico has so much beauty to offer and I have always wanted to share this rich and diverse culture with the rest of the world. We started Casa Brixe in order to work directly with artisans and socially responsible collectives to bring you high-quality, small-batch textiles made using time-honored techniques.
Every purchase we make is an opportunity to make a declaration about who and what we support. We at Casa Bríxe support authenticity. In sharing the culture of Mexico, we want to make sure you get the real thing, not an imitation made in another country. Buying imitation goods is a missed opportunity to support the people who keep these traditions alive. You shouldn't have to compromise what you believe in, even when decorating your home.
We promise that everything we offer is made by the real people, the real way. We promise you will receive an authentic piece of Mexican artisan tradition and that you'll know exactly where it came from. We hope you will be as excited as we are to share this story and become a part of our journey!
Anti-Mass Production / Anti-Factory
Our products are never mass produced.
We want to provide an alternative to fast fashion and decor by supporting independent craftspeople and cooperatives.
We will never sell anything that is made in a dangerous factory under oppressive working conditions. You will always know who is responsible for making your items.
Our reach will not outgrow our mission
Success is a good thing but it’s better when it’s done ethically and carefully.
If opportunities come up in the future for Casa Brixe to grow, we will not do so at the expense of our commitment and ideals.
We will not change our strategy from collaboration with independent craftspeople and cooperatives to mass production in factories simply to fill more orders. We would prefer to be sold out than to sell out.
Fair Wages Aren’t Enough
We want to propose a new way of doing international business in which collaboration and enrichment are prioritized. We never negotiate with artisans. We pay them what they ask for-- plus give back a portion of our profits on an annual basis to a project of their choice. As our company grows, we’ll keep you up to date on the progress.
