Dipped rope knot bracelets x Tanya Aguiñiga, jewelry/furniture designer from Tijuana, Mexico.
As a member of Border Art Workshop BAW/TAF, a bi-national artist collaborative, Tanya’s main objective is to use art as a vehicle for community empowerment. Through BAW/TAF she helped to build and run a community center in an impoverished area of Tijuana built on trash from the US. During her time there, she focused on bringing national and international attention to the community’s plight through arts only based programs.
"Like a brick and mortar version of an iPhone app that effectively shops the entire planet and plucks from its bazaars the very coolest, most original looks for women. Scoot down to Nolita to visit and touch and smell and see array of invigorating fashion, denim, handbags, accessories, and "lifestyle elements." Bolivian cowhide bags, Chinese cell phone charms, French perfume, Danish denim. Pearl River Mart better recognize." -Blackbook Magazine
