Elena Flores: A Business Hecho con Amor
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – It’s exciting to think about owning your own business someday. By creating a company that’s uniquely yours, you can dedicate your time towards work that you’re passionate about while surrounding yourself with people who believe in your vision. Elena Flores, Founder of Sew Bonita, did just that by turning her sewing hobby into a successful business that reflects her love for all aspects of Mexican culture.
As a self-proclaimed Chingona (“badass woman”), Flores creates and sells uniquely sewn items like cambaya bags and vibrant hoop earrings, as well as one-of-a-kind t-shirts and accessories.
Flores was raised in Eagle Pass, Texas, a border town along the Rio Grande River. She started sewing in 2014 and, for the most part, taught herself everything she knows.
