La Embajada translates into "the Embassy" as as such, we aim to bring to the US a rich experience of contemporary Mexico, offering the very best expressions of the country’s art, craft, design, and vintage furniture.

Expertly curated by designer Raul Cabra, our creative director, La Embajada is the result of over 19 years working throughout Mexico with artisans, designers, and antique dealers. The result is an ever-evolving collection of the hand-made, a true reflection of the beauty and complexity of Mexico's creative production.


From our creative director to our sales team, we all share a deep love for the cultural heritage of Mexico, a sensitivity to design, and a commitment to hospitality.

Creative director

RAUl Cabra

"As a designer and educator I believe that design is a tool for social change, and that it can be an effective force to empower artisans and makers when the right collaborative environment is created."

Born in Bogotá, Colombia, Cabra spent his childhood in Caracas, Venezuela before coming to the US to study design at California College of Arts and Crafts (CCA). For many years, he taught at CCA and co-founded the graduate program in design. He also created an academic collaborative project called “Oax-i-fornia,” which brought art students to Mexico. Oax-i-fornia has since become a company that benefits artisan communities and specializes in crafting handmade objects for hospitality brands in Mexico and abroad. As Creative Director, Raul curates the selection of La Embajada, and provides design services and product customization as well.
