Handcrafted & Fairly Traded

about us

Founded in 2016, Baja Urban is an ethical social business.   At Baja Urban, we have started producing fair trade handcrafted products through a sustainable supply chain with impact. We are currently collaborating with two artisans’ collectives from México. The first collective is located in Chiapas and the other in Hidalgo.

Our mission is to help connect consumers with artisans by including the artisans’ story with each product. By connecting customers with the producers, we are creating meaningful and bonding experiences between producers and consumers.
