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).

They are sold in local markets around Tijuana; you’ll usually find her at the Foodgarden, a local restaurant that holds monthly farmer’s markets. their next event is their 1-year anniversary and if you want your Marfil shirt, she’ll be there Saturday March 15th.
