    We are a creative house with a fashion and printing atelier, a herbal garden, a rental apt and 3 private rooms upstairs for the crew.

    We are 2 creative, and quite busy, German women moving together and realizing our dream of an open work and living space.

    Private room in a quite house with garden located in the most exciting area of Cholula.

    Flexible working hours with tasks based on your talents. Building something from the scratch with two cool and creative chicks. Good music & a great connection to the local music and party scene.

    Cholula is a great place and has a lot to offer. The pyramide, plenty of churches, great food and local markets - a small town charm with a vibrant party scene. With it´s location it´s a great hopping off point to other parts of the country like Puebla, Oaxaca, Veracruz & CDMX. Your working hours will be flexible so you can use some days inbetween for travelling.
