Erika Duran, an El Paso native and artist behind Eradura, has worked with us to create a limited edition print of The Milagro. In Spanish, the word Milagro means miracle or surprise.These folk charms were traditionally used for healing purposes and votive offerings – we see them as good-luck charms. Erika has hand-designed Milagro charms that we then printed in gold on our Bio-Knit Market Tote.
"Tiny invocations shimmer like a shot in the dark -- these desert inspired icons live as symbols of hope and luck for their possessors. Milagros have a deep-rooted history as folk charms tying devotion to ritual, but their true magic lies in the universal simplicity of their purpose: we are all waiting for our miracle." – Erika Duran
