Specialty - Bags, scarves, tops and accessories
Artist: Maria Guadaloupe Cervantes
I was born and raised in Mexico City, where I completed my Business degree at the University of Mexico. Afterwards I started working in the Banking Industry, but my passion always laid in design coming from an Artisan family for generations. After I moved to Puerto Vallarta, I met my husband, got married and immigrated to Canada and started my new life and finally followed my dreams.
My design/crafting venture began in my artisan's workshop in Campbellville, Ontario in 2003. Now, it has become a family business, my husband who retired last year is now is helping me full time with the production, logistics, sales of my small company. I pride myself in working with quality, sustainable, vintage and organic eco-friendly products to recycle and produce my personally designed textiles mixing natural fabrics with contemporary elements. I love working with different textures to make my creations, and my goal is to create products that are useful in everyday life.
We produce in small quantities and sell to some specialty stores across Canada through the TGF show, the rest of our entire production goes to Festivals and Craft & Art Shows. We enjoy traveling around Ontario to promote our products at some of the following: Muskoka Art and Craft Show, Hand Made Market in St. Catherine (Spring, Fall & Christmas), Art in the Park in Windsor, Haliburton Art & Craft Show, Artistry by the lake in Niagara on de Lake, Hand's Makers Picton, Kempenfest Art & Craft Festival in Barrie, Kingston Art Fest, Canadian National Exhibition - Arts & Crafts Building, Medford Art & Craft Show, Ball's Fall Craft Show, Signatures Craft Shows in Ottawa, Market in Calgary, One of a Kind Toronto.
