Follow Sugar Skull Culture


Sugar Skull Culture is an online store and community with a shared love for sugar skulls. We sell and promote fashionable sugar skull and skull-related products which include clothing and accessories, jewelry and home decor. Our own product lines reflect mantras for everyday life displayed in beautifully crafted sugar skull designs.

How did Sugar Skull Culture begin?

Sugar Skull Culture was born in 2014 from a love of sugar skulls and all they represent. While they can now be considered popular culture, their origin and meaning is steeped in history and tradition.

Sugar skulls originate from Mexico, where from 31st October to 2nd November every year they celebrate the lives of dearly departed family and friends. The 2nd November is known as the Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, and can be traced back to ancient traditions among Mexico’s pre-Columbian cultures.

On the Day of the Dead sugar skulls are often used to decorate the gravestones of the deceased. They are known as “sugar skulls” because traditionally they are made out of cane sugar and are decorated with colored foil, icing, beads, and feathers.

Sugar skulls are very colorful and whimsical, not scary at all. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

• A portion of the proceeds to benefit Darkest Before Dawn, a charity built to offer support, community and resources to our brothers and sisters in the service and live music industries. Often at high risk for depression, suicide and addiction, along with little to no mental health benefits, these members of our late night community have very little to fall back on when crisis hits. DB4D aims to shed light on these shortfalls in the benefits system and offer help and security to those in need. Our community has lost several well-loved members recently to suicide, addiction and homicide for that matter, and we hope to bring a level of support to these late-evening workers that is sorely missing.
