Our Frida with Sugar Skulls Totes are simply exquisite!
They have been exclusively made for us and we have strictly LIMITED numbers!
They are made by the talented and skilled Emma from @designsbyemmah! Her craftsmanship is second to none! When I first laid my eyes on Emma's totes I knew immediately that I simply had to have some Frida ones made! I searched high and low for unique Frida fabric and found this Frida with Sugar Skulls design!
The fabric has a dark eggplant background and is adorned with glorious, colourful sugar skulls! There are also gorgeous images of our Frida! The inside lining is a bright orange and the straps are a stunning shade of red! These two colours compliment the colours of the Frida fabric!
The Day of the Dead is the biggest religious festival in Mexico celebrated early November. Mexican's celebrate the life of their deceased family members through festivities and not sadness.

Day of The Dead Traditions:
I wanted to learn more about this Mexican tradition, particularity the meaning behind the sugar skulls! So I asked my beautiful customer (now friend and fellow Frida lover) who is Mexican and now resides in Miami Florida. These were her words...
"There are many interpretations and these are a few of them. 1. With the name of the deceased, as part of the “ofrenda” - a tribute filled with the departed’s favorite food, flowers, candles, music (if you haven’t watched the movie Coco, I highly recommend it!) 2. With the name of someone living; as a gift to a friend or relative, wishing good fortune in the afterlife. 3. Sharing something sweet on Day of the Dead, a beautiful tradition, to remind us that life is sweet but we should not be afraid of dying."
