Carla Rosales, born and raised in Mexico and founder of 32 Estados in Switzerland, has the intention to spread the word about all the positive things that Mexico has to offer via the work of Mexican product designers having a social impact. 32 Estados provides the platform to those who are already showing the world that design made in Mexico is at par with any other international proclaimed creation.
After living in different countries around the world (USA, Vietnam, Finland and now Switzerland), Carla wanted to find a way to change the perspective of the typical «Tex-Mex», which is the Americanized version of her own country. And while traveling in Mexico, she started finding wonderful design pieces that honored her traditions and that could be part of an international style. The best part of it is that the designers work in collaboration with artisans to make contemporary design and developing social projects. So, once Carla moved to Switzerland, she decided to open her online concept store 32 Estados to promote Mexican design in form of meaningful, handcrafted products with culture and a story.
