Mami Made is the sewing craft line I run with my Mom. Mami has sewn all her life. She learned this necessary life skill while growing up in the rural countryside of El Salvador. Her mother taught her to stitch as well as the insightful tactic of looking at fragmented pieces then making something out of it. I write in further detail about Mami's handmade magic in My Mother's Hands.
The idea behind Mami Made was that Mami has always made beautiful practical things for me. After a night of listening to the purr of her sewing machine, my light bulb blinked on: why not share her craft with the world? She thrives in the process of creating something from thread and fabric. My sister is an Art Therapist so the process of making art to heal runs in the family. Mami glows when she gives that item to its new owner. Mami Made is a way to nurture my Mother's creative spirit and share her craft.
Below is a visual appreciation of the love that Mami stitches in each of her craft. Whether she's making my prom dress, a princess dress for her granddaughter, a vintage style cocktail dress to fit all my curves, Mami pours her humble love in every inch.
Thanks again to Remezcla for showcasing Mami Made.
