Bototoys for charity
Posted on

Last Wednesday we dropped by Ronac Art Center’s Secret Fresh Gallery to view the customized Bototoys for breast cancer awareness.
It’s been a while since I’ve gone out so I’ve been rusty with my picture-taking.
Some of the Bototoys I liked were Rita Nazareno’s hand woven creation.
Rita, a breast cancer survivor, drew mastectomy scars on her Bototoy.

It took only one day to weave this. Check out the backpack.
Rita’s family owns the Vizcarra label, known for their handwoven products. (Sold to Jeroen van Straten)
