So this is my first entry that is non-food related, but I want this blog to encompass other things besides just recipes. There is this designer that I totally love, and wanted to share her name and what she is doing with everyone. Her name is Dalia Pascal and she designs handbags and jewelry.
I picked up this bag at the airport in San Jose del Cabo. I am normally not an airport shopper, but when I saw this bag I had to have it. Dalia designs the bags and works with indigenous women around Mexico, who hand embroider the fabric. The intricate embroidery of textiles is a dying craft in Mexico, and pretty soon we will not see the beautiful work that make places like Oaxaca and Michoacan so rich. Dalia’s line features diverse textile designs, all handmade. She is helping the preserve the technique of hand embroidery, while updating its use for more trendy styles. I am really in love with my beautiful bag and hope everyone looks for her stuff the next time you are in Mexico.
