The Mexican name for baja hoodies and drug rugs is sudadera de jerga and they can be found all over Mexico. Sudadera literally means hoodies in Spanish and jerga is the woven material that they are typically made from. The term baja hoodie originates from when entrepreneurial Mexicans from Baja California stared crafting the sudadera de jerga to sell them to the American surfers who were heading south to explore the magical coastline of Baja California and the consistent and secluded waves that this are of the Pacific offers. It was these surfers that brought their souvenirs back to The States and the term Baja Hoodie was coined.
