About Us

Fiesta Ziesta was founded in Encinitas, California.

Several surf trips around Mexican beautiful coastlines turned into a business venture for Alejandro Ramírez originally born in Guadalajara, México. By traveling, having been engaged in the surf and beach apparel industry, and understanding both cultures and languages, Alejandro had the idea and vision of creating an awesome brand for these products. These experiences shaped his perspective and understanding of our world´s growing demand for fair trade, sustainable, and eco-friendly business development.

"Fiesta Ziesta" is the Spanish translation of "party nap". This name drew inspiration from the Mayan culture as to this day, the Mayans celebrate and sleep in their hammocks. 

When Alejandro was a little kid, he would go on surfing trips to secret surf spots with friends, where they would sleep in their hammocks and cover themselves with beach blankets. These road trips, awesome sunsets, friends and family are the inspiration behind Fiesta Ziesta.

 

The philosophy of Fiesta Ziesta is to sell products hand-crafted by artisans, and in turn increase their quality of life, by providing a fair income, and by creating a more sustainable livelihood for them.
