I was always interested in Peruvian art, especially in ceramics. I believe in positive energy and good vibes. I got together with my dear friend Magari Quiroz, ‘Maga,’ a reporter and classmate from journalism school. She suggested bringing back the alasitas motifs, which are the wishes that the ekeko dolls bring. ‘Alasitas’ is an Aymara word that means ‘buy me.’ Maga proposed I should create my own version of these traditional images. In 2011, we began creating colorful little houses and waqgons that shoppers liked. We also included the message ‘Discover your dream’ and a history of the alasitas, which are gifted as wishes.
