¿Listos para la moda Tenugui?

¿Listos para la moda Tenugui?

Cuándo somos amantes de Japón de una u otra forma buscamos crear ese pequeño espacio que te recuerda al viaje que hiciste o quieres hacer. Son conexiones que no se pueden explicar y solo se disfrutan en su momento. Hoy les quiero contar sobre el Tenugui. Es un pequeño trozo de tela de algodón que los japoneses, empresas y restaurantes suelen tener con su marca o texturas representativas de la cultura. Es tela muy delgada que se deshilacha un poco pero aún así tiene muchos usos, además de historia. El Tenugui está evolucionando en su uso y en lo personal me encanta lo que nuevos artistas están haciendo y como la gente se está apropiando de esta pieza dándole un “segundo aire”  con ese diseño que sigue mostrando toda la esencia de Japón renovada. Los japoneses lo utilizan de muchas maneras: Toallas faciales. Accesorio de moda. Toallas para cocina. Tapete de mesa. Decoración en casa. En ocasiones de envoltura. HISTORIA Según Kamawanu Shop’s “A Rambling Talk About Tenugui”, el Tenugui se originan en la era Heian (794-1192 A.C.) Un lapso en que la paz y las manifestaciones artísticas existían. El Tenugui durante esa época se utilizaban en rituales Shinto. Después durante el periodo Nara (710 -794), el uso de esta prenda no estaba a disposición de todos, pues los atuendos eran muy importantes. A partir de la era Kamakura (1192-1333) gradualmente se fue haciendo popular. Y en el periodo Edo (1592-1868)  el algodón comenzó a cultivarse en varias partes de Japón y el Tenugui se convirtió en una prenda necesaria. Más tarde gracias a un concurso que convocaba a diversos artistas “Tenugui-Awase” a mostrar su arte, provocó el desarrollo de...

The heart of Mekishico

The heart of Mekishico

Have you ever thought what would it be to make a business out of your favorite things? Help yourself and others? Live day by day your passion? That is Mekishico for me. It’s probably everybody’s dream and “the thing to do” on every entrepreneurial blog. Well, it’s possible but it’s not simple. It’s not like you can just leave everything and only do this one dream project so it can work 100% in a year and be a success! In my case I’m a mother, leader in a tech community (GeekGirlsMx), blogger at caractercreativo.com.mx, designer for a mexican company and  Mekishico’s creator. I find passion on every project I do but it’s clear to me that each one of them gives me something according to the time I invest. Each one of them has a heart, a meaning of beign otherwise I wouldn’t be involved with them. Today I want to share about Mekishico’s heart. I love both countries; México & Japan. You can see it on the brand and feel the passion on it’s social networks. But what you may not see is what is happening on production and what is comming. This 1st. collection was made by a grandmother that loves being a seamstress working from home. She has great quality and well she needs to be at home to work and take care of her grandchildren. I have seen how many people sometimes go through really bad times, they may not be from a poor place but yet they may be struggling in the city. Not so long ago I saw this proyect in SF that bathed homeless...
