ALEJANDRA THOMPSON | Founder & Creative Director, Thompson Traders

Alejandra Ochoa de Thompson, founder and creative visionary of Thompson Traders, grew up in Patzcuaro, Michoacan, located in the bucolic countryside of southwest Mexico. Alejandra emigrated from Patzcuaro to the United States at the age of 22 with her husband Clifford, her childhood sweetheart. Early in her career, she designed award-winning spaces for major department stores and hotels worldwide. Her daughter and Thompson Traders Marketing VP Samantha Thompson Lizarraga recalls in particular the larger-than-life magic of her holiday displays, including one featuring over-sized Easter Bunnies and eggs, which she created for the White House Easter egg hunt.

The awards and accolades for her accessories design were abundant, but Alejandra knew it was not meant to be her life’s work. Every visit to Mexico reignited her love of copper arts and moved her closer to the goal of bringing the authentic beauty and craftsmanship of Santa Clara del Cobre to American homes. Alejandra’s dream became a reality a little more than a decade ago when she and daughter Samantha took the bold step launching Thompson Traders, a company whose portfolio features Alejandra’s beautiful copper designs for the kitchen and bath.
