we seriously love Los Angeles
we dig our city, especially our neighborhoods & can tell you at least one unique thing we appreciate about any neighborhood in the Los Angeles metro area… & not just where we live or the obligatory 5 mile radius.
we are Angelenos who appreciate our beaches, mountains, deserts, valleys, freeways, rivers & all our urban, suburban & rural communities & could keep going on & on, but maybe it’s best to simply say, we simply enjoy living here.
we like telling others how to get around on metro & all the good spots in L.A. for urban hikes.

barrio.la is all about looking up, down & around, making sure we take in everything this city gives to us – like it’s amazing parks, community gardens, outdoor markets & street art.
you can find us around Los Angeles eating cócteles & tacos, perusing vintage stores, getting coffee at local shops & discovering all the best Los Angeles designers & products.
we dig reading product labels & thinking about how we can waste less, reuse more & help local people.
we are barrio.la
we want you to know our products’ ingredients, their purpose, who made them & to feel confident about supporting us & our product partners, so you’ll want to tell your friends.
barrio.la believes the fewer the ingredients listed, the better & we especially dig when something has multiple purposes & minimal packaging.
we love the challenge & choice we can all make in buying stuff made, designed or crafted in Los Angeles.
co-creator jen kanter was interviewed in 2007 by the Los Angeles Times to discuss her concern over food labeling & was asked the simple question “why?”
jen said her goal is to “… help people know exactly what they are buying.”
… that quote pretty simply breaks down our hope for barrio.la.
think about the feeling you get when you step into a boutique or small shop that has friendly, helpful people who want you to find that perfect gift.
we know you will get this feeling every time you come to barrio.la.
