The Classic Pom
Some objects are so full of good energy, people can't help but smile when they see them. The Classic Pom is one of those objects. Each strand emits positivity and playfulness, and every thread is purposefully crafted to fill your world with joy and happiness.
Each pom is hand-made by artisan families in the rural mountains of San Juan Chamala, in Chiapas, Mexico. It takes an experienced artisan 2-3 hours to complete. When they make poms, it is essentially a meditation - a tradition they have carried for many generations. These families live so secluded and far away, many have never left the mountain they live on. The sale of each pom helps them live, thrive, and deepen their culture and connection with the land and their families without having to modernize or leave their communities for a stable source of income.
The magic of poms is hard to describe in words. It’s something you feel, something you sense. When you see someone wearing poms, you can’t help but smile. When you put them on, you feel joy and love shining from and upon. As if you and the universe are in on secret. The connectedness of all that is. The infinite power within us. The gift that is life, and laughter, and love.
