Yalála is a Zapotec and Queer owned retailer based in Los Angeles, California.
Yalála is a phonetic simplification of our previous name Yeaj Yalhalhj meaning "the flower from the place of scattered mountains" in our native Zapotec language (Xhon).
As a ceramics company, it is our mission to support and bring awareness to ancestral pottery knowledge and techniques from indigenous villages throughout Mexico. We strongly believe that history and knowledge are embedded in each of the pieces we showcase. As a team, we feel it is necessary to share our art to prevent erasure.
Please support our vision in any way you can.
