Sugar art was brought to the New World by Italian missionaries in the 17th century. Mexico, abundant in sugar production and too poor to buy fancy imported European church decorations, learned quickly from the friars how to make sugar art for their religious festivals.
Sugar skulls represent a departed soul, they have the name written on the forehead and are placed on the home ofrenda or on the gravestone to honor the return of a particular spirit. Sugar skull art reflects the folk art style of big happy smiles, colorful icing and sparkly tin and glittery adornments
The Sugar Skull bag is made out of plastic mesh with hand embroidered sequins that bring out every detail of its decorations. The handmade nature of this bag makes it unique and only one in stock.
The skull pom-pom decoration is hand embroidered in Mexico.
