“One word, given in love, has the power to change a person’s day.”  That is the mantra of Yolanda Esquer, founder of Touvlo Cast.  Named after the Greek word for “brick,” Touvlo Cast creates decorative blocks that marry typography-in-design with personal affirmations and inspirations.

BOXHILL collaborated with Touvlo to produce a series of signature phrases that are uniquely BOXHILL.  Words like Dwell, Once, Truth, Unless, Magic, Luck, Inspire, Gather, Urban, Seed, and Live Outside decorate outdoor gardens and patios everywhere.  They also created a limited edition series of “Born Modern” blocks to commemorate Tucson Modernism Week, and donated a percentage of these sales to fund this annual event.
