About

The story behind Flora Y Luna started on a faithful day after walking into a hat store in downtown Los Angeles on spring street. The lady and owner of the store told me she loved my hat, a hat which I had trimmed myself. She then advised me to take a hat class. So I did, I took 4 classes from Yvonne and I was hooked. I couldn't stop. I needed to know and learn everything there was to the craft of hat making. Learning through every hat I made. It has most definitely been a rollercoaster but one I'd ride over again. So here I am creating and loving what I do and I couldn't do it without having the ability to GIVE BACK! I choose a different foundation to donate to quarterly. I also create hat raffles in order to give back to the community!
I am completely grateful for everyone who has supported me along the way and excited for the future of Flora Y Luna! 
The inspiration: 
I get my inspiration from everything I remember seeing as a kid and every place I visited with my grandparents. Mexico being my main sore of inspiration. 
I grew up in small town named Turicato Michoacan. Where they have constant dances and parades in the street, always celebrating or praising something. Colors, foods, dances and fireworks. Being from Michoacan has filled me with so much culture and inspiration its hard to keep things simple. The more colorful the better. Everything has a story and I love telling them. 
Thank You for reading!
