The art of making sacred candles has been passed down in Viviana Alávez's family for 300 years. The craft nearly disappeared from the Oaxacan village of Teotitlan del Valle in the 1980s, but Viviana kept it alive with her innovative designs and break from tradition.

Viviana does not have an online shop. She sells her candles locally in Oaxaca.
