"Well made!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The cosmetic case is very well made. The only thing is that the colors are much darker then shown on my computer screen. The color is more of an orange and beige. Not at all rose as stated in the description. It is still a very nice cosmetic case but was a bit disappointed in the color that is on the design area of the cosmetic case. The zipper is a very sturdy one. Still very pleased with my purchase. The artisan did excellent work. Would recommend and buy from again.

Mirian embodies our Women’s Empowerment badge for the strength she has shown in the face of atrocity. "I suffered a terrible incident of sexual abuse, but I survived and have moved past it," she confides. Mirian continues to inspire us with her resilience. "When I was still a young girl, I learned the art of hand-weaving from my mother. I'm proud of preserving this ancient tradition and I'm passing it on to my children."

"I love this art because it represents my past and my present. Through our weavings, we communicate our cultural values. Preserving this beautiful artistic tradition has become a challenge since young women don't seem to be interested in weaving, so we need to promote it or else it will die out." Mirian first learned how to weave from her mother, and wishes to inspire others and pass this tradition down to new generations."

Mirian is a strong and amazing women who has managed to overcome a horrible incident of sexual abuse. Her hard work and determination have made her the inspirational woman she is today.

Mirian has worked hard to create new designs which has led to the increase in her sales. Her perseverance and passion have helped her continuously expand and grow her weaving workshop.

Mirian Otzin has received 2 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $200 and the most recent for $200.

Both of her children are still in school and Mirian plans to continue to financially support their education.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.

Mirian has two children that she supports, Julio and Ferando.
