    HISTORY

    Handcrafted equipales were designed over 500 years ago by skilled artisans of the Aztec Empire in central Mexico. Using organic and regional materials to craft furniture that provided both comfort and aesthetic pleasure, these artisans inspired a design concept that has been passed down through generations, standing the test of time. Today, authentic equipal furniture is handmade in Zacoalco de Torres, Jalisco, a small town located south of Guadalajara.

     

    STORY

    During the 20th century, equipales became popular through the rise of photography of beach resorts in Mexico. However, as demand for and production of equipales increased, their quality began to suffer. The goal of our New School Equipal collection is to restore high quality in equipal furniture while focusing on sustainability. This collection is composed of 100% natural and biodegradable products, such as locally sourced leather, Mexican rosewood, and waxed cotton twine. Furthermore, our furniture is now available in select water-based colors, vegan options, and custom sizes.

     

    DESIGN

    In our collaboration with Austin-based designer Chris McCray, we are committed to the original equipal design concept from over 500 years ago, and we use materials that are 100% organic and biodegradable. For added practicality, we’ve simplified the concept to include only the essential, organic materials. This means that your furniture, after having served its lifelong purpose of providing you with comfort, can return to the earth’s soil.
