#5WomenWriters Embroidered Quotes Oversized Bags Limited Edition

#5WomenWriters Embroidered Quotes.
 These #5womenwriters Oversized Bags were made with a lot of love. It took me several months to gather the perfect materials that I visioned for this series. I traveled to San Francisco to buy the upholstery fabrics at my favorite fabric store in the Mission district. Each quote is hand embroidered and embellished with vintage ribbons and laces that make them unique and unrepeatable designs. The linen inside was carefully thought and made for each bag with different colors. The tags are always the last thing add since I hand sew them as a special touch.  Finally, the Women Writers who inspired these Bags, are the true muses of the Serie. About two years ago, I ran into an Instagram book club account dedicated to promoting writers. This specific post was in January, and it said that the account, in general, posted a few women writers so he decided to dedicate that month to promote women writers. I thought since there is an initiative for #5womenartist…

Fight Like A Girl

We are always told to "run like a man"  or "fight like a man" or "grow some balls" in order to show courage. But in reality, you can actually "run like a girl" and win; you can "fight like a girl" and be strong and also win; and definitely, there is absolutely no need to "grow some balls" in order to be courageous (just study women in the arts' history).  In fact, everybody knows that balls are very delicate. The uterus, on the other hand,  I think is one of our strongest organs. It can hold and push a baby, taking a hell of a beating during labor,  heal itself, and then repeat.  Inspired in all the above, I designed this girl with her "Love Pink & Fight Like a Girl" patch, reclaiming the color Pink as no longer a representation of delicate. We do not need to emulate "like a man" to be strong and courageous. We can be all that and while being girls and/or women, always occupying our own skin.  A…

The Traveling Embroideries Series

Last year, I immersed  myself in the amazing process of embroidery. I was inspired by punk, stencils, Frida Kahlo and my own illustrations.   I really loved the creative process of embroidery. I love the sound of the needle when it makes contact with the fabric; it sounds magical to me.   Because you can carry the embroidery hoop everywhere,  I called this serie "The Traveling Embroideries". They were made in between continents, offices, airplanes, beach home, in the city, and finally at my home.
Some of  them were sold at an independent designers store in Chile, Corazon Bordado (Embroidered Heart), and the rest  are finding their purpose.
