Where it all began.

A brief history of our unique brand.

The adventure really began when we took a quick trip with friends to a resort area in the central Baja Peninsula region on the Sea of Cortez, specifically the town of Loreto. We went there a few times because it was a quick getaway, and it was still reasonably undiscovered in the mid-1990s and as yet un-commercialized. We wandered as much as we could, being the vagabonds we were, but we were limited because no cars were available. We found a local taxi, and the driver took us to the closest town (90 miles north) we had researched, Mulege. We enjoyed the incredible coastline of Baja. After three trips to the central area and a following trip to Cabo San Lucas, we found ourselves wanting to experience much more of the culture and heritage of Mexico that exists beneath the layers of tourist trappings. So, a few years later, the opportunity was presented to travel to Guadalajara and the San Miguel area to meet with artisans and truly experience Mexico's heart, soul, and different cultures.
