Our story

Founded by Texas native Rose Ann Hall in the 1990s, and now owned and operated by her son Charlie Hall, we are a mission-driven U.S. company. Our Mexican factory and store, Exportadora Camino Norte, is led by Mario Vargas. Watch the video to learn our story.

Rose Ann Hall

Rose Ann Hall Designs employs skilled artisans, some with physical disabilities, and all of whom take personal pride in their creations. The essence of individuality is their purpose. Everything they do and everything they make is one layer, one stroke, one breath at a time. Perfect, yet imperfect... consistent, yet inconsistent, just like the people that make it."
