Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

When Teresita was diagnosed with cancer after she gave birth to her first child, doctors told her that her chances of survival were slim but against all odds Teresita beat and eliminated the cancer that had grown in her. Although her medical treatments were essential to treating her cancer directly, Teresita attributes her recovery to laughter, positivity, and her ability to create art every day. Each of the alebrije sculptures that Teresita has made has uniquely given her a bit of strength to carry forward and live life to its absolute fullest. Teresita is known among her colleagues as a positive light and is a tremendous example of strength and virtue to all cancer survivors, mothers, and women worldwide.

Teresita received local recognition and an honorable mention from the Friends of Oaxacan Folk Art Competition (FOFA)- an organization dedicated to promoting traditional handcrafts and folk art of the Mexican state of Oaxaca.

Teresita has continued to preserve her unique technique and pass down her alebrije traditions to the youth in her workshop and use culturally significant materials.

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.
