Ojala Threads' Cucharitas are the perfect reminder of heritage. Each is carved from madera de guayacán by Dominican artisans; then painted with Taino symbols.
Our Cucharitas come in four designs Agua, Bebe, Coqui, and Estrella (North Star) and will be accompanied by my poem El Camino.
"Some use roads, others trains. Some sit in planes that navigate paths created by wind. Imagine if they saw us now. Leaving our lands. Navegando la aduana, and not stars.
Es que cuando la tierra ya no da, people flee, migrate, run...
When you have to protect your legacy, the next generation, you are willing to risk it all. In hopes that the child designed by the universe to occupy this space, este momento, this branch on the family tree, will have a chance.
But chances are tricky for there are ríos que son grandes. Y del desierto ni hables. But there once was a child that was found by the North Star and honored by three kings".
- Each Cucharita measures 4".
- Primary colors inspired by Ojala Threads.
- Because they are handmade no two are the same.
