El Shoppo brings high-end home accents to Birmingham

With a keen eye for the truly unique and a penchant for color, editor turned designer Zoë Gowen brings Oaxacan craftsmanship to the people with her recently launched lifestyle brand El Shoppo.

Based in Birmingham and popping up across the Southeast, El Shoppo sources huipils — those easy, breezy hand-embroidered cotton tunics currently being worn by in-the-know local ladies, as well as an assortment of plastic woven totes named "The Moderno," and taper candles. 

Centerpiece worthy, El Shoppo's 36 inch taper candles are works of art. Made of all-natural beeswax by fourth generation Oaxacan candle makers, each candle is 100% beeswax and comprised of 20 peony blooms. And while the purple is our current coup de coeur, the black is both earthy and dramatic, perfect for the bewitching season.

El Shoppo’s The Flower Candle is currently available in four colors: Amanda (purple), Celine (white), Emma (pink) and Prudence (black) at $500 each.
