Corazoncitos - bundle of 3
These small heart-shaped pompoms with unique hand-embroidery on each one are sure to melt your heart. The base textiles are "scraps" left from production, in both new handwoven naturally-dyed textiles and repurposed traditional cortes with ikat. Each bundle comes with three unique corazoncitos ("little hearts").
Perfect for adding a sweet touch to a decorate a bag or any corner of your home, as well as car. Honestly, the possibilities are endless - let us know how you get creative with these cuties!
Each pompom is handcrafted by a group of makers at a permanent relocation community for those displaced by the Fuego volcano eruption in 2018. The group was formed not long after the eruption in a temporary shelter situation to provide work for women going through such a challenging time. Together, they have come to create beautiful embroidered pieces and form relationships to support each other. Now, families have dispersed but we continue to work with one small group of makers.
Please note in the comment section if you have color requests. We will do our best to honor them.
Width: 2.25 inches for the heart
