If colour is your thing, this Sugar Skull Trio Pencil Case is for you!
The Day of the Dead is a famous Mexican holiday as well as other catholic communities who celebrate all saints day and all souls day. (All saints day, not to be confused with the british girl group All Saints!)
Also known as Día de los Muertos, it is very closely related to Halloween. It is celebrated between November 1st and 2nd. People dress up and paint their faces to celebrate those who have passed. In Halloween traditions, it’s a dark and scary event. Dressing as ghosts and ghouls, skeletons and witches. In Día de los Muertos they paint their faces in bright colours and dress in the same fashion.
In 2008, UNESCO recognized the importance of Día de los Muertos by adding the holiday to its list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Today Mexicans from all religious and ethnic backgrounds celebrate Día de los Muertos, but at its core, the holiday is a reaffirmation of indigenous life.
This black material case will fit all the pens, pencils and bits you’ll need in. You could even use it as a makeup bag! Printed in varying bright hues and bold white outlines. Maybe you could keep you face paints and makeup in it ready for the next Día de los Muertos.
