Nancy Charraga started selling Casa Bonampak merchandise at street fairs in 1996. The business evolved into a storefront at 24th and Mission streets, which Charraga operated for 10 years. She began to outgrow the space by selling wholesale and online (at MexEvents.com), and three years ago moved the business to a bigger space on Valencia Street.

Watch the video above to hear Charraga talk about the importance of passing on Latino culture, and listen to the full interview to hear her views on fair trade, Mexican history, activism, the Mission, working with indigenous artisans and more.
