MILAGROS by dosa
Inspired by milagros (miracles) religious folk charms found at the Basiilica de la Soledad in Oaxaca, Mexico, dosa’s Milagro project was founded as a means of providing employment for local women near Oaxaca and to make use of the smallest textile scraps from dosa’s fashion production (not a single dosa textile scrap goes to waste). To date over 74,000 hearts have been made using more than 410 pounds of dosa remnants.
These hearts are made from the scraps of fabric from dosa’s Spring Summer 2015 collection featuring illustrations by Makoto Kagoshima. Each garland contains 24 hearts and is about 63 inches long.
