Mystic Traveling Woman in Search of Treasures

My store name is "AwilaAsul". It means "Blue Woman" in the quechua language from the Andes mountains in Peru.
Art and creativity was my call since young age. Curiosity made me very observant of my surroundings and the beauty of nature. When I was 15 years old I asked my mom to let me attend a school of Interior Design in Mexico City (where we were living then). Mom was not easy to convince but finally she agreed. I felt right at home from the start.
I like to repurpose clothing, furniture and even stones from far away waters. Recycling and reusing is a must to keep our earth clean and shining!
I have travelled to several countries in America and Asia. Their art and customs have inspired me to continue my work. Just returned from a year trip to Thailand, Guatemala, Peru and Mexico. My head is full of ideas that you'll be able to see come to life in my products.
Welcome to my Etsy store!
