Life & Work with Isaac Padilla and Roman Flores
We’re Isaac and Roman, best friends and co-owners of Que Rico T-Shirt Co. Our company was originally conceived when we were in high school but didn’t materialize until 2013. We originally started a men’s accessory brand that created accessories for the dapper gentleman (pocket squares, lapel pins, etc.). With that brand, we participated in various markets and trade shows throughout Texas and California. It was during those events that we noticed there wasn’t much (or any) Latinx representation or products that catered to our community.

Tote bags make life so much easier.
In them, we throw our purse essentials, office supplies, groceries, gym clothes, and anything else we can cram into them. In some cities, they have replaced plastic bags, and we hope that everyone gets on board with opting for reusable bags for a healthier environment.
Totes also allow you to share something about your life without having to utter a word, much like our equally-loved T-shirts do.
