Few days later than expected, here is the second episode of Support the Handmade Revolution!
Last time I told you about Flatwig, today I’m introducing the wonderful world of DezaYeppa, with her Mexican inspiration, reinterpreted in a personal way, that will please a lot all the fans of the Frida Kahlo-style atmosphere.
Delia Segattini started in 2002 producing homemade calaveras, sugar skulls that in Mexican culture are used to exorcise the fear of death: people prepare them for the Dia de los Muertos, colorful celebration also made of “colorful garlands, skeletons and puppets, piñatas, flowers, mocking poems, music and banquets, all made to face death with humor and courage”.
Delia discovered all this thanks to a trip to Mexico (of which she absolutely have to tell me more!): this is where she fell in love with Mexican culture, in all its facets.
With DezaYeppa, Delia is working not only on her handmade creations (of which she is properly proud), but also to the divulgation of Mexican culture values through events, workshops and craft parties, especially in the area of Ancona, but it would be worth to invite her more often around here: I say to you, indie markets organizer with some budget! I really would like to learn line how to prepare a beautiful DIY Altar de Muertos!
But let’s discover now DezaYeppa creations: first of all I’m saying to you, boyfriend of a compulsive crafter, so hard to please. Well, you have several options: Besame mucho is a series of heart-shaped hand-embroidered magnetic pincushion and brooches, but there are also felt tissue holder.
Or the irresistible sewing kits: your lucky girlfriend’s eyes will become heart-shaped!
But do you know what I recommend, most of all?
The Ramon cactus brooches, so cool, and even more the brand new hoodies, just put in the online shop. Last summer Delia has successfully tested a line of embroidered tank tops, but with these sweatshirts she has definitely exceeded herself!
