The Fierce Frida & Rebozo
Posted on November 05 2016
As a woman, I identify with the fierce attitude of Frida Kahlo, but as a Mexican woman, I identify with Friday’s legacy. Frida is not only well known worldwide because of her art, but also because of the fashion statements she often made. Her personal relationships, while often complex to the rest of the world, in a way were simple yet chaotic. You can see her strength in her self-portraits, you can read about her strength in her quotes.
As a Mexican-American woman, I embrace every single cell of my culture.
-My determination to succeed as business owner goes beyond motherhood pushing me to be my best.
-My determination to succeed comes from the need and passion I have to share my roots and culture with my products.
-My determination to succeed is supported by the flexibility and resilience I’ve had to embrace as a military spouse.
I often wondered, “how can I share the pieces of art Mexico has to offer?” I found a way through footwear manufacturing, most recently sterling silver .925 jewelry (authentic Mexican silver actually ;), and now I present to you handbags made out of Mexican rebozo.
What is rebozo? Let Frida show you…
Rebozo is a traditional Mexican shawl used mostly by women in Mexico. It can be worn in a variety of ways. In Mexico, we use it to protect ourselves from the sun on those hot days, it is even used a tool during child labor! It is also to carry babies, and to accessory any outfit. It is common to see rebozos in fashion weeks, worldwide.
This multipurpose fabric is what we are using to make our newly launched handbags. Rebozos are not only a symbol of the Mexican culture, but they are said to make the movement of a woman more graceful.
I invite you to take a look at our design of handbags, available in two colors for now. If you have a special request, please send us an email or reply below.
Thank you for your support & preference, and I look forward connecting with you all in the next blog!
