Effigies of Frida Kahlo, wrestling masks, floral printed fabrics, woolen ponchos, Jesus and Mary fridge magnets, lucky skeleton charms and hand-painted ceramics from San Caterina Palopo. No, you’re not living a weird Latino dream, you’re in Tienda Esquipulas, a small boutique in the heart of Montmartre, dedicated to supporting Mexican and Guatemalan artisans. Each item has been hand picked by the shop’s owner, Ana, and represents her vision of modern popular culture in Latin America. Whether you collect quirky knickknacks, or just fancy adding colour to your wardrobe, pop by for a mooch – it’s like a journey without the jetlag.
