Details

With an inspiration of making art accessible to all, Mexican artist Alejandra Aceves has one of her signed original paintings printed on this ceramic mug. The nostalgic and colorful painting depicts two traditional Mexican Maria dolls.

The charming doll originated in Mexico City when many Otomi and Mazahua people migrated to the capital in the 1970s. Due to their unique traditional clothing, the women became known as "Marias." An educational program was established for them and artist Diego Rivera's daughter, Guadalupe Rivera Marin, encouraged crafting these popular rag dolls as a way to generate income in the 1980s. Artisan women took the idea home to their Mazahua and Otomi towns and the dolls became popular throughout Mexico and abroad.

It is a little harder to breath because it is thicker than my other face masks.

"Incredibly soft and breathable!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is the only mask I ve worn so far that doesn t feel like it s smothering me; as seen in the pictures, the fabric points outwards in the nose area, which gives you plenty of freedom to talk, breathe, etc.. I don t even feel the metal strip inside because of how comfortable and natural the contour of the mask is. The material is also very soft and the kitty design makes people of all ages smile!

This was a gift for my sister. We love the adult coloring books, but what to do with the completed project? Postcards are an excellent idea. She says they are beautiful!

Our hats are off to this incredible woman who suffers from debilitating fibromyalgia and still managed to run a marathon! "While I experience extreme pain on a daily basis, I've never let it hold me back. I'm a fervent supporter of female empowerment, and I try to pay it forward by employing other women. I pays fair wages so that they can support themselves and their families.," she says.

Alejandra has won eight awards so far for her talent and artwork, including Guadalajara's Design Week Competition, the 2014 Presea Ocelote, and is looking forward to receiving her next award in November in Argentina.

Even when odds were against Alejandra with no cure for her fibromyalgia diagnosis, she found the strength to change her life for the better and conquer the impossible - running a marathon.

Alejandra uses and continues to hand down traditional techniques to the youth in her workshop who, now carry on her same methods.

Alejandra has built her jewelry workshop with NOVICA and is now able to give work to some incredibly dedicated women.
