Gift: Garland of Hearts
A string of 19 handcrafted hearts made in Oaxaca. Perfect Mother's Day present.
This project is both a means of employment for local Oaxacan women and a creative way for us to repurpose the smallest of colorful scraps from clothing production. Each heart is handmade, hand stitched, and hand beaded by a small group of women in the town of Ejutla de Crespo, just outside of Oaxaca.
No two hearts are ever the same. Approximately 65 inches long, hearts interspersed with colorful beads. Packaged on a heavy sheet of handmade paper.
