Oaxaca Goddess Inspiration
“Dare to Be
When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.
When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.
When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.
Dare to be the best you can –
At all times, Dare to be!”
― Steve Maraboli
introduction to oaxaca lands
Adriana, or better called "chulita" by us, is a master key in Ubuntu story.
Yoyo met her briefly few years ago through a friend in common, the last conversation was outside a nightclub in Valle de Bravo.
Years after, her paths cross again in Oaxaca. Adri has been living for many years in Oaxaca, submerged in traditions and artisanal work, she is now working with different communities around the region to spread the magic and the traditions of different communities in Oaxaca.
Thank you Adri for your love, for your endless efforts, for being a bridge between the modern world, and the artisan, to keep working and sharing traditional handworks from indigenous communities that are loosing their origins.
Adriana has a beautiful project called Mano Madre.
"MANO MADRE is a project from woman to woman that began with the concern of sharing the traditions and roots of my land, communicate my culture in a creative way in collaboration with native people of Oaxaca.
It is a project where listening to these people and working together in an honest way is essential, all together creating unique and handcrafted products"
Mano Madre is one of our most inspirational projects. We are very proud of artists like her and the amazing impact that her work is creating and generating for so many people.
It is an honor, a privilege and an inspiration to see women joining forces with different backgrounds and strengths to create and make dreams come true.
