VIVA LA CALAVERA was launched in 2014 when Celia and Darren, an Australian couple traveling in Texas fell in love with the “Day of the Dead” art. They decided to start importing some of the amazing pieces to bring the Mexican vibrant art and culture to Australia.
VIVA LA CALAVERA translates to “LONG LIVE THE SKULL”, an is a common phrase in a culture where death is celebrated with color, food, music and joy. That’s why the brand is playful and celebrates death to embrace life.
In 2020, VIVA LA CALAVERA passed into Mexican ownership. With the vision of a Mexican entrepreneurial mind, the brand was relaunched with a new mission: to share a taste of real Mexican culture with authentic and traditional Mexican art.
VIVA LA CALAVERA IS PROUDLY 100% MEXICAN.
Our collections are entirely hand-made in Mexico. To be part of our team you must love tacos and tequila!
