Collaborating to Help Indigenous Communities in Mexico April 21 2019, 0 Comments
We are really excited to announce that Shoptezuma is joining forces with the Fundacion Kanxoc in Mexico to bring you the amazing artisanal products from the Mayan community called Kanxoc, located in Yucatan, Mexico.
In our search for great products from Mexico, we strive to find those that represent the best of Mexican culture, with top-notch quality and that can help local producers, artisans and communities develop their talents and capabilities to reach more people. This is just a sample of how Shoptezuma can accomplish all these, by collaborating with an up-and-coming foundation that is helping people in far out places, to bring development into their communities.
Based on the values of honesty, collaboration, trust, equality, respect and identity, the Kanxoc Foundation promotes the collective work of craftsmen and women of Kanxoc with self-sustaining projects that strengthen Mayan traditions and techniques used for design and fabrication of handcrafts. Kanxoc supports the collective work of craftsmen and women of the Mayan community called Kanxoc located in the state of Yucatan, Mexico and their self-sustaining projects strengthen Mayan traditions and techniques used for the design and fabrication of our products.
The products that Kanxoc has developed range from fashionable clothing and accessories, to gorgeous technology accessories and household items. Check them out:

Dia del Niño with El Chavo del Ocho April 16 2014, 0 Comments
April 30th is a very special day in Mexico, as we celebrate the little people who fill our lives with joy - kids! And it's also an opportunity that many of us, the old ones, take to search within for the kid inside ("el niño que llevamos dentro"). Across schools and houses in all of Mexico, kids are celebrated in their day... big or small, boy or girl, it's the day to be happy and playful.
As we get ready to celebrate Dia del Niño, there is one childlike figure (more like icon) whose innocence and ingenuity has survived the test of time, a character that started many years ago on TV and continued to entertain kids young and old for decades - El Chavo. Roberto Gomez Bolaños "Chespirito" created this character in the early 1970's and since then has been a staple of Mexican entertainment, surviving to this day in the animated series of the same name, including all the famous characters like Quico, La Popis, Ñoño and Don Ramón.
At Shoptezuma we want to celebrate this joyful occasion and pay tribute to this lovable character by offering you a collection of toys from the TV series that are sure to bring back some memories. Be sure to check out El Chavo Parlanchin, a personal favorite as it plays back some of El Chavo's famous phrases. Also a favorite, El Chavo's Hat... you'll wish you had one of this when you were a kid.
We hope you enjoy this April 30th, play with your kids or nephews if you have any, go out and run and jump on your own if you don't. The point is that you find and connect with the kid inside.

Shoptezuma: A New Destination for Mexico Enthusiasts July 02 2013, 0 Comments
This is what's behind Shoptezuma. The belief that there's a gap out there, where people who love Mexican culture (whether they're Mexican or not) are still looking for the 'real thing', not just the average conception of what most people believe to be Mexican. Lo autentico...
