“ We wanted our first pattern to be the banana leaf because it reminded us both of holidays with family. Every christmas we both remember our mothers, aunts and grandmothers gathering around to create pasteles, a Puerto Rican and latin dish, which is time consuming and labor intensive, and wrapped in a banana leaf before boiling it for hours till completion. It brings back beautiful memories of home and we wanted to create that feeling for everyone on their walls.
