The Day of the Dead, or Dia le los Muertos, takes place on November 1st and 2nd. It is celebrated around the world, but in Mexico it is a national holiday. I am fascinated by this celebration. It is so colorful, and, while it is honoring those departed, it has a sense of joy that is contagious. The fabrics that are made to honor the day are brightly colored and full of life, even though the motifs are skulls or skeletons!
The fabric with the sugar skulls is one of my most popular, and I sell bags made with it year round.
Here's a purse made with Fiesta de los Muertos. see what I mean? They are having a great time!
You can find the Day of the Dead themed bags in my shop here. As always custom orders are encouraged.
