Mixcoatl is an Aztec name in the náhuatl language, and it means "The Milky Way." The Milky Way is many stars blended into one galaxy. This Is symbolic to us because our dream and visión is to bring together many Indigenous cultures to represent in one store.
Mixcoatl specializes in authentic, original Indigenous handmade arts, jewelry, and clothing from all the Américas. We want to share our culture and keep our traditions alive. We want to support all the artisans by bringing these authentic crafts to our beautiful neighborhood called La Mission.
