Mexicali Blues treats smiles as a form of invaluable international currency, one that breaks down borders, translates languages, and transforms experiences from ear to ear. Smiles have been an important part of the Mexicali ethos since its inception in 1987, and Mexicali owners Pete and Kim have spent the better part of 30 years sharing smiles on their adventures across the globe with the help and support of the whole Mexicali family.
As a company, we have decided that not only is a smile the best way of doing business but SMILE is also a perfect acronym to better understand how Mexicali Blues functions. Let's kick it off with the Start of the smile and we will work our way from ear to ear...
It’s no secret that our favorite boho home decor addition is the equal parts incredible and unique Recycled Silk Sari Curtain! We’ve been selling these gorgeous flowing fabrics for many moons with the help of our talented artisan friends who source the fabric and sew them out of recycled silk sari fabric in Jaipur, India. When we first found them we were captivated by their upcycled origins, their silky smoothness, their kaleidoscope colors, and the wonderful way that they diffuse light!
We love how you have embraced the unconventional, boho-chic aesthetic that they bring to any space. Get ready to be inspired 💫
According to the Oxford dictionary, a sari, or saree (don’t worry, we’ll get to that later), is:
A garment consisting of a length of cotton or silk elaborately draped around the body, traditionally worn by women from South Asia.
Whereas a fashion-forward fondness of sarees is shared across South Asia, even having been reflected in western culture of late, the sari is popular, in fact, ubiquitous in India. It can be worn as a sari dress, a sari wrap skirt, or in its most elegant form, as a traditional Indian wedding saree. In fact, there are more than 80 ways to style a sari, and if that wasn’t enough, did you know that there are more than 100 types of sari fabric in India alone?..
