THEIR STORIES

"Oaxaca is huge and very beautiful. All the places you go--the markets, the houses, the patios, the streets, the gardens, the small restaurants, even the workshops, which are workplaces--are full of colors, textures, smells, flavors, of music; even birds sing differently. And I would like everyone to know. So I try to say it with my work: Oaxaca is a beautiful land where we are all artisans.
"With the help of her sisters, she developed a shared passion for embroidery at a young age. Together, they love making traditional garments called "huipiles" other bags.
"She is a strong and independent woman, eager to learn new things; furthermore, she likes to look beyond her community and aspires to reach the peak of her craft every day. Continuously, she labors her crops and gives her all on every stitch.
"Since that's when vendors bring all kinds of traditional products to the local market, and she gets the opportunity to study them for new sources of inspiration. She finds collaborating with a brand like Someone Somewhere a very enriching experience since it helps raise awareness for the cultural significance of her cultural heritage.
"Her first works were based on simple drawings. With time and practice, her work became more complex, growing with her skill. Today she's one of the most skilled young craftswomen, a keen student, and a loving daughter.
"Florinda and her football-loving husband have three children, to which she is super dedicated. After three years of construction, the family was finally able to move into their new home.
"A woman that loves to spend time at home and cherishes life's most beautiful moments beside her family. Always displaying a cheerful smile to those who surround her.
"My greatest dream is to give my family everything they deserve. I want to build a house for them so that my children can study whatever they want. I know that everything can be done little by little, with much work. But, thank God, now we do not lack work in the workshop, and in my spare time, we sell the stews and desserts that my wife makes. In addition, we like to watch TV together and go for a walk whenever possible. Around here there are many beautiful places.

IN MEMORY OF IRENE

For the first time, we said goodbye to one of the artisans who has inspired us the most in the construction of this dream called Someone Somewhere. With Irene, we encountered challenges, learnings, frustrations, achievements and moments full of happiness. All this, to achieve a dream that, today we share with many more artisans than we could ever have imagined.
REST IN PEACE
IRENE (1983 - 2020)
