In Mexico’s incredible wealth of indigenous history, the Huichol have their place as a native people that have survived Franciscan mission & Spanish colonialism to retain their language and customs throughout the centuries. In the mountainous regions of Jalisco & Nayarit they continue to live largely isolated from, and sometimes mingling with modern life. Known for their yarn painting & objects decorated with beads, Huichol art is an intricate craft.

The Vault by Vans x Huichol capsule releases September 20 (limited to 360 pairs globally) at select stores including: Vans DQM General NYC & Boston, Blends, Bodega, Conveyor, Darkside Initiative, Opening Ceremony, Proper, and St. Alfred.
