Hello!Welcome to Pepita the Traveler
My name is Yolanda. I am a teacher and illustrator. I love to travel. I grab my backpack, imagine my destination, and buy a roundtrip ticket. I don't need much else!
One day, returning from one of these trips, I was in my painting studio. As I looked at the pine trees surrounding it, I started to think about how to bring together my three passions.
So I got my pencil and drew. Ever since that day over ten years ago, Pepita has been traveling with me everywhere…
Pepita the Traveler
A girl with two ponytails, yellow boots and a big, red backpack was looking at me and smiling.
Then, I closed my eyes for a moment and when I opened them, I saw two ponytails moving up among the trees. I watched for a while, like a traveler, and it came to me…
We've met amazing people
We've learned the customs in the places we've visited
We've painted what we feel
We've learned from the artists we've seen
...and we've made projects together to feel connected and united with the world
This doesn't end here, of course. Afterwards, we go to class and tell the children about what we've learned. All the girls and boys from my school now know Pepita.
I will never forget the day a girl looked at me, her eyes filled with wonder as if she'd discovered the world's greatest treasure, and said:
– Seño… You’re Pepita!
And just like you meet new people during a trip… We are now preparing a new adventure with a group of friends – Amaya, Jose, Dani, Pepita and me – to discover the great big world and everything we want to know about it .
Will you come with us?
These are just sketches of everything we are designing and manufacturing with all our love… and they will soon be available on our online store.
