Clothing and Folk Art de Mexico

For information about the items we carry, regular updates on new shipments, etc, follow us on Facebook and Instagram!

At Bella Frida we carry a unique collection of hand embroidered blouses & dresses from Mexico, woven shawls, Guatemalan huipils, Day of the Dead items, silver filigree jewelry, oilcloth, woven pillows, papel picados, Guadalupe, original paintings, Frida Kahlo, tin Sacred Hearts, Saints and more. In addition to representing artists from Mexico, Guatemala, Ecuador and Peru, we also feature art by American artists who do Mexican-inspired creations.

Most of our items are one of a kind!

Prepare to be wowed when you walk in the door, by the burst of cheerful colors, by the quality and by the wide selection of legitimately cool stuff.

Imagine your favorite Free People tunic, but hand-embroidered with surprising color combinations (anything goes) in Guatemala or Mexico. The fashion factor and price point is comparable, but the quality is much higher. And of course, there’s the story. Clothing that tells a story intrinsically has more value to me.

Louisville’s charm goes beyond edible delights. Its walkable Main Street is filled with distinctive stores like Bella Frida, a shop dedicated to Mexican folk art and Guatemalan textiles, two independent bookshops, and the Singing Cook, which has Colorado products such as St. Vrain Jams. A few years ago, the alley near Steinbaugh Pavilion filled in with more shops and restaurants, giving downtown a bohemian hidden grid reminiscent of romantic European cities.

The 'Burbs Aren't So Bad

Lambrecht treasures the same colorful textiles and crafts, and so has filled her Bella Frida shop with handmade Mexican imports, including apparel, Talavera pottery, oilcloth and folk-art works of all kinds. Stopping in here is the next best thing to shopping at a Mexican street bazaar.

Best Frida Wear (2015)

As part of Louisville’s First Friday Art Walks, one of the best in Colorado, Bella Frida Clothing and Folk Art (924 Main St., 303-926-9000) hosted an open house with Texas artist Kimm Lanus in their tight, multi-roomed cottage. Kimm was impersonating Frida Kahlo, and I kept returning to look at one of her multi-media paintings of Frida. Finally she said, “If you go home and can’t get her out of your mind, you need to come back and buy the painting.” That’s exactly what I did.
