HACHA by Santiago Padilla

Since 2014

HACHA is an independent design firm, which seeks to give a handmade touch to its products, but at the same time aims for design innovation. The main goal is to pay attention to every detail. The purpose is to make items used in everyday life objects of design, decoration and functionality.


It is a 100% Mexican brand that merges the tradition of a pottery workshop with a woodwork and design project. It arises from Santiago Padilla’s idea of mixing materials like ceramics, wood, leather and others. The workshop where quality pieces are created is located in Tlaquepaque, Jalisco, it was founded more than 60 years ago, by Don Paco Padilla, Santiago’s grandfather. Each piece is made by hand, most of them in the lathe. We work with techniques such as stoneware and majolica. The manufactured ceramics burn at high temperatures, decorated with reactive enamels at 1,280 degrees Celsius in a reducing atmosphere.

MATERIALS

In HACHA, only first quality materials are used, from the hidden screw to the clays and local wood. We work in a traditional way to give life to each product and to achieve harmony between all the elements.

Hacha’s products are manufactured in our family workshop piece by piece, we follow procedures and craft techniques that allow us to oer unique objects. We care about each detail, from choosing the clay that gives great resistance, to the firing and glazing process of our recipes for ceramic glazes. The lamps are made by hand, mixing high quality materials looking for simplicity in their design, to light up any space with elegance and functionality.

The furniture is made of high quality solid wood, follows a design style of simple shapes, turning each object into a unique piece.

We look for simple and balanced forms that highlight the characteristics and qualities of the materials that are applied for its creation.
