Trece Cielos

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!

What a weekend! 😅 So, so grateful and happy to have been part of it. Every year is different but this one was ❤️clients from past years visited us again and that felt super special; thanks to @uniquemarkets for doing this, year, after year, after year, after year (more like 10 years, actually, lol) it just keeps getting better! Such a fantastic event and definitely one of a kind! The music was 🔥 I just couldn’t stop dancing. I remember the first year I did it, I was super shy and scared of talking to anyone. Thanks for all the people that shared a laugh, an smile, a little 80s dance; the ones that laughed so hard and bought a mug or 2 or 10! to all fellow vendors that stopped by and are new friends, thanks to all the people that gets my style, my jokes and sometimes my weird sense of humor, for some of you it might be just another year and another gift on your list, and I feel happy for it: the vibes I get from you, the shared laughs, the connection, the little talks and shared stories, that happy little moment, that’s what makes me so grateful and keeps me going. It is not just another market its #uniquela and Thank you!!!! 🙏🏼🛍 If you just missed it please don’t do it again and visit the Santa Monica version!!! I Will be there visiting friends and buying from them 😂🤘🏼 📷: Famous @valvogt2 picture that was used for the uniqueLA billboards that were all over LA @zooeyinthecity is the cute little model #makeamericashopsmallagain #sograteful #uniquela #10yearanniversary #seeyounextyear #notashoppingmall #ahellofaholidayparty #shopsmall #livingunique #trececielosmugs #cmc #uniquemugs #madeinlabrands #madeinla #localartist #supportsmallbusiness #supportyourfriends #youallrock #oneofakind #holidaymarket #uniquelysocial
