The Carmela (single)
  • The Carmela (single)

    This colorful garland holds about 20 hand-made pom-poms and measure about 5ft. from tassle to tassle (length differs slightly on each one).  Use one to liven up a doorframe, or tie them together to make one long garland.  Use as a party decoration or hang a whole set in a window to make a fun curtain.  The possibilities are endless!  


    The Carmela is made by the Tzotzil and Tzeltal women of the Chiapas mountains.  


    *We are waiting and hoping for a connection to a maker in Chiapas who we can form a relationship and partnership with.  Until then, these are purchased from a craft market in San Cristobal de las Casas.  However, they are still handmade and directly purchased from their indigenous maker... which is what Papel Picado is all about!
