I have a friend in Yelapa a little bay in the pacific ocean in Mexico close to Puerto Vallarta, a place where you can only access by boat, there are no cars in this place and host a total of 3000 people between locals and tourist.
A place that feels like paradise and so disconnected from the actual world that we are immersed, in this recondite place in the earth the arts and handicrafts take a big place on a normal basis in the life of this people.
As I mentioned before, my friend lives in this place, she is a teacher for elementary school, we became friends years ago in Mexico city when she was studying acting, we love arts and we have a big passion for the art created by native hands of Mexicans. The work that takes to create this beautiful pieces handmade and unique is so especial, can take several days to made them, si nos encanta the colours, the creativity that’s put into each piece.
This is why she start to reaching to regional artisans collecting and selling this beautiful pieces at Yelapa.
Some pictures of the place.
Enjoy corazones de Bombon!
