About

A mexican mug shop with a touch of kitsch and pop culture
“Our first mug was a drunken cat celebrating Christmas…”
“Something that you can always collect!”

“A bad ass, great quality mug, a personal statement…”

“We buy local, a main part of our philosophy to support small business like us…”

Trece Cielos Mugs was born out of the love of art, design and global trends translated into something useful, functional, durable and accessible like a mug, something that you could always use, see, touch, drink from and collect!
Trece Cielos or Thirteen Heavens comes from the aztec vision of the vertical universe, the earth and the underworld afterlife. I am from Mexico City and in love with this lunatic, artsy and cultural cathedral where the aztecs were conquered and erradicated. They believe in these 13 levels of consciousness of the underworld that helped to have a balance between life and death. All this history is stamped in my spirit, but sometimes I feel my amazing culture is unnoticed and under appreciated but having this legacy is an honor.

We have our home studio in the heart of Pasadena, where I work as a Designer/Illustrator and my husband as an Architect, of course we are tea lovers and coffeeholics, we love to travel, explore the urban side of Los Angeles every weekend and have adventures with our 2 year old super crazy sleepyhead.

We started collecting mugs from every place we visited but found out that sometimes you just want a bad ass, great quality mug with a personal statement, a funny quote or a cool naughty joke to use in your daily routine, I started printing them out for ourselves and giving them out as gifts to friends and clients, everyone cherished them out and we embraced the idea of start selling them. Our first mug was an illustration of a drunken cat celebrating Christmas, my fav holiday.

We believe in Self Sustaining Communities and try to buy local all the time to support people like us, that’s our little help to reduce carbon footprint, besides we respect others’ own creativity and work, that’s a main part of our philosophy as a small local business, if you feel we can collaborate with you in any way, don’t hesitate and make contact with us, a quick e-mail or message will start wheeling our heads.

We try to keep every mug on the short runs to make sure the design you have always stays unique, each product is created in-house, so we are able to add more fun to the shop regularly and create as many fun designs as possible, eventually we will create more goodies and decorations for the home.

Our mugs are large size 15oz
Dishwasher and microweavable safe
High Quality White Ceramic
Design is waterproof, cool and permanent.
We ensure a great quality product and printing process.

If you have any question or would like any customization, kindly send us a message, we can try different variations or any personalization to your mug. Additionally we work with large quantities for any event or social cause.

Feel free to express your ideas with us!

The #xolodog is a sacred guardian and regarded protector of the souls. They are also the official #dogofmexico hairless breed. Aztecs believed they would safeguard the home from evil spirits and they were often sacrificed and buried with their owners to act as a guide to the soul on its journey to the underworld and thirteen heavens, trece cielos in spanish (a hint about our name) These dogs were considered a great delicacy, and were sacrificed for eating at weddings. #xoloitzcuintle were considered sacred dogs by the Aztecs, Toltecs, Maya, and other groups. According to Aztec mythology, the god Xolotl made the Xoloitzcuintli from a sliver of the Bone of Life from which all mankind was made. Xolotl gave this gift to Man to guard it with his life, in exchange #xolo would guide man through the dangers of the underworld, toward the Evening Star in the 13 Heavens. This amazing doggie is available on a mug, ready to protect your soul from bad coffee, even in the afterlife. #xolosofinstagram #mexicoofficialdog #trececielosmugs #aztecdog #mexicocityhistory #xoloitzcuintli #xolos #aztecsecret #mexicandayofthedead #trececielosillustration #illustragram #mexicanart #mexicanillustration #mexicocity #xoloiscuintle #dogofaztecs #soononamug #dantepixar

You deserve a lover who wants to dance with you, who goes to paradise every time he looks into your eyes and never gets tired of studying your expressions. You deserve a lover who listens when you sing, who supports you when you feel shame and respects your freedom; who flies with you and isn’t afraid to fall. You deserve a lover who takes away the lies and brings you hope, coffee, and poetry.
