about us

Each one of us has lived all over the world all all found ourselves in Baja California Sur, Mexico, a place we all deeply connect to. We each understand living in a foreign country and far from home. We all have nomadic souls and appreciate adventurous souls. We bring that spirit to our design every day.


We help our clients design spaces that match their lifestyles and procure the best products for their designs. We have developed industry relationships and resources to bring México’s one-of-a-kind authenticity to every project. Our manufacturers and artisans encompass originality and functionality from real, local producers – not catalogs or large factories. Our products are of the highest quality and capture our client's unique vision.  Our creative, multilingual, boots-on-the-ground team manages your logistics and listens to your needs, no matter where you are in the world. MERCANTIL is located in Todos Santos Baja California Sur (about one hour north of Cabo San Lucas, México), and we have two divisions, Residential design services and Hospitality. We work on projects throughout the Baja California Sur region, throughout México, and the United States.
