Spiritú, an online community where women can shop, connect, and be inspired, unveils its Spring 2019 Box designed by artist Sonia Romero, a well-known muralist and printmaker based in Los Angeles. Romero’s design is part of her “Inner Landscape” series and depicts a woman holding her heart, surrounded by flowers.
“I am delighted and grateful that my art will be part of the Spiritú Spring 2019 Box,” says Romero. “This image depicts our internal emotions and energies in symbolic form. I made this artwork with the intention of bringing healing energy to a friend and I know it will bring positive energies to everyone who receives it. My figure is also holding her heart, an area of the body which seems to hold so much emotion, love and power.”
The Spiritú Spring 2019 Box is valued at over $175 and features beauty and lifestyle products from name brands as well as products sourced directly from Latina entrepreneurs in the U.S. and artisans in Latin America. The Box begins shipping out in mid-March and is available now for pre-order. Click to pre-order your Spring Box.
