Master Makers of the Flying Mobiles Collection, Isabel and her team make the very popular Flying Mobiles. It takes great skill and years of experience to paint the wings and body to each mobile. Only two artisans have mastered the ability to paint wings. Isabel has been able to increase the number of full-time employees by 80% since working for Tulia's. Most are single-parent (moms & dads) heads of households. New designs are co-created with Karen, Isabel and her partner Federico. Tulia's is proud to support the continued growth of Isabel's workshop.
