Announcement    Hola! Hi! Salve! I'm Maritere. Although I am a full-time Latin middle school teacher, I like to say that I am a lifelong maker who has been drawing/painting/sewing/making since childhood. Besides pursuing my passions, sharing my life with my husband and two dogs, spending time with my family, and hanging out with my friends are some of the sweetest joys in my world. The work featured in this shop emerged from what I observed as a lack of diversity in educational toys — specifically toys highlighting the accomplishment of Black and Latin women.

The fabric panels I have designed are simple and straight-forward and are perfect for beginners, either for machine sewing or hand sewing.

To families and educators who are looking to incorporate more multicultural experiences in their and their children’s world, I say: start where you can and go from there. We spend a lot of time trying to surround kids with a physical space that nurtures them, both at home and in school. We make choices whenever we purchase something for that space.

So start small, start with a doll.

A Long Story, A New Focus

Many, many years ago, I opened a little shop called “avinini” when my niece and nephew were born! Thanks to your support, I was making sweet, simple, adorable clothes for many babies and toddlers in many people’s lives. My focus has shifted over the years as I explored different types of sewing and I’d like to present some new products here at “Made by Maritere.” I hope you enjoy what you see here and visit my shop.
