Ezshwan will be showing her new series of paintings, “Women Who Changed the World,” and Cynthia will introduce her boutique of one-of-a-kind pillows, “Once Upon My Pillow.”

Cynthia said, “I created ‘Once Upon My Pillow’ from a long-felt desire to do my part for my community, for my fellow woman, and for the environment. With the help of women in San Miguel, and under my guidance, we created these pillows from cashmeres, silks, cottons, and unique trims and buttons to design and make one-of-a-kind boutique pillow cases, all hand-made from 100 percent recycled materials. I had a desire to help local women work from home, stay close to their children, and explore and expand their natural creativity by hand embroidering and sewing with a treadle sewing machine, using 100 percent recycled materials. I do most of the cutting and all of the designs and encourage my Mexican assistants to use their creativity.” The attention that goes into each pillow is similar to a Chanel jacket but without the price tag.

Her Mexican assistants’ lives have become interwoven with hers. Of course, it is challenging and time consuming for her to find the perfect garments to cut up to make beautiful designer pillows; however, these are pillows with a purpose.

Ezshwan researched for months, deciding whom she would include in this series. “I learned much about women that I knew only superficially. I choose women whom I thought had made significant changes in our world. There are many more, but I focused on 15. I could have continued indefinitely, but I felt it was time to move on to a new series.”
