Cinco de Mayo is a holiday that commemorates The Day of the Battle of Puebla in Mexico, and we use it as an opportunity to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride in the United States. There are countless ways that our neighbors to the south have shaped and influenced American culture, and the Spoonflower site is no exception!

Mexico has a rich and vibrant textile history, full of color and unique shapes and texture–our marketplace is full of prints that reinterpret and play with traditional design. Check out some highlights, below.
