When we came back to Mexico City in the end of 2014, one of the more interesting changes we noticed was the emergence of popular culture as a cool thing. Everywhere we saw signs of what was considered "low" culture being reappropriated by the rest of society as a hip culture.
An example? The xoloitzcuintle, an ancient, hairles breed of dog native to Mexico. So, a company has created Xico, the xoloitzcuintle character you see below, and is selling Xico figures, backpacks, and diverse items, some of them really nicely made and reaching stratospheric prices. A very interesting and nice turn of things, for sure.
