About BordandoEsperanza

Sales 865
On Etsy since 2020
Video summary: Wendy, an Artisan Beyond Borders just returned to El Salvador after waiting 10 months in a shelter at the AZ - MX border to apply for asylum. Here she cares for her son as she embroiders.

Bordando Esperanza: Embroidering Hope

From: https://artisansbeyondborders.org/

Since 2004, when we borderland residents began to find exquisite embroideries left behind in the desert south of Tucson ~ "Heirlooms in the Sand," with smart feminine sensibilities in each stitch ~ we vowed to find a way to bring attention and respect to the makers. From 2018 - 2021, we've been helping these vulnerable families using the healing power of creativity to restore grace and agency through the work of the hands, solidarity among the artisans, and respect for cultural and familial arts across borders. For stories of the makers, see "Profiles in Courage and Creativity @ https://artandfaithinthedesert.com/.
