Description: Think of Paquetes as a care package that your abuela sends you while you’re away from home. You know, that warm, fuzzy, excited feeling you get when you open a box full of regalitos. That’s the feeling I want to create. Paquetes is a monthly subscription box that helps people connect to their heritage. Each month, the box focuses on different towns in Mexico, bringing unique items from those towns and teaches people how to make them, all with the help of curators who know a thing or two about the area. This particular box that I created focuses on the chicle art and guava rolls from the town of Talpa de Allende in Jalisco, Mexico.
