Story

The  Equipale Chair tradition dates back to Pre-Hispanic times. Families have manufactured equipales since legend says that Hueman, the Aztec shaman taught the 'equipalera' technique of the Gods to the early settlers. Today equipales link the mythical past to a modern cultural icon.

The word 'equipal' derives from the Náhuatl word 'icpalli' meaning asentadero or seat. The icpalli are illustrated in the ancient cloth books like the Codex Mendoza. It is said that the last Aztec ruler, Moctezuma, had his equipal sent from Jalisco.
