About Us

Xixo

Xixo (Shee-sho) means "Well done" in the Nahuatl language spoken by the Aztecs in Mexico.

Our commitment to preserve and promote culture and handmade products, work with socially responsible partners and support local communities in Mexico led us to Cuadra, a Mexican designer and handmaker of unique leather products with twenty six years of history.

We know that heritage, originality and innovation can be forged into unique pieces of art that leave their mark and Cuadra artisans produce leather artistry so you can make a statement.

 

 


 

Cuadra

Cuadra is a Mexican handmaker of fine leather goods based on a unique concept, aspirational cut; that represents a lifestyle of freedom, reminiscent of its own success and character over twenty six years.

Cuadra's soul is that it is unique combining individual designs, colours and techniques such as hand cutting, painting, engraving, carving and embroidery.

Cuadra luxury leather goods in casual, dress and western styles are handcrafted in limited quantities with special quality and uniqueness appreciated by people that demand something different. 

In a global market with identical products and mass production, Cuadra remains true to its history and tradition of hand craftsmanship and embraces innovation to continue building its own personality.

Not only the marks on the leather make each piece different, the hands of a Mexican artisan make it unique.

 


 

Social Responsibility

Quality is important but being “handmade” the soul of Cuadra, the working environment of their employees is paramount.

Cuadra provides annual health campaigns and finances continuing education programs, school supplies and visual and oral care.

Employees are provided with daily meals in an inviting outdoors palapa within a relaxed environment and physical activities are encouraged with exercise sessions every day at noon and annual tournaments.

Cuadra is committed to the environment with part of their materials being environmentally friendly, recycling of cardboard and leather trimmings, professional disposal of solvents and their own wastewater treatment plant. Plastic bags for packing are biodegradable and some rustic models come in a reusable bag made of jute fiber.

Leather suppliers have international environment certificates and are subject to audits to ensure that leathers are free of banned substances and do not not affect humans and the environment. Leather dyeing is made with water-based colors that do not pollute and give a better finish.

Cuadra is a leading company and you can shop worry free knowing that their artisans work in the right environment with sustainable practices.
