Marfil: 100% Tijuana

Tijuana has great food, people, and places to hang out. However most people don’t know much about Tijuana-made products (and I don’t mean those in the maquiladoras!). There are so many local brands that have interesting Tijuana inspired clothes. One of these is Marfil (Spanish for ivory).
