Hispanic heritage month kid's shirt

Hispanic heritage month kid’s shirt

This week we are getting calls from parents from all over the country looking for a special shirt for their kids for Hispanic heritage month. Hispanic heritage month have been celebrated since 1968 the observance goes from September 15 thru October 15 each year.

This special period celebrates the history and cultures of Lain American countries the independence day for many of these countries fall within September 15 and October, in addition October 12 Columbus day is celebrated in the US. Hispanic heritage month is celebrated at schools and day care centers with arts and crafts, show and tell, plays, readings of famous poets, food, and learning some Spanish words and other activities, the kids love it as they learn and immerse themselves into this rich Hispanic culture. For kids of Hispanic descent is also a special time to showcase their traditions and share with their fellow students stories about their heritage and culture.

During this time of the year we got many calls with pretty much the same concerns. “Do you sell kids Guayaberas?”, “…I’m looking for that Cuban shirt for my kids..” , “…my son has a play at school for Hispanic heritage month and I need to find an appropriate shirt…”, “…I need a shirt for Hispanic heritage month..” We do offer kids Guayabera shirts also known as Cuban shirts for kids during Hispanic heritage month and thru out the year. If you are not from Miami don’t worry, we can ship these beautiful kids Guayaberas just in time for Hispanic heritage month.

 

For those in Miami specially in the Kendall area is very easy to visit our Guayabera showroom at 12188 sw 131 ave Miami, Fl 33186.  See the map below:

I was born in Matanzas Cuba, a magical place for music. Our ancestors came from Spain and Africa and turned Matanzas in a cultural center for centuries. Matanzas had influence Cuban and world music in many ways. I remember as a child running to see the main drummers in my town fiestas, from an early age I  learned to appreciate the black roots in our Cuban music.

In my opinion the rumba group called “Muñequitos de Matanzas” are one of the top representation of this popular music and culture still alive today. In the video bellow you will see them playing right next to Frank Fernandez one of the greatest Cuban pianist, enjoy!.

Royal Violets by Agustin Reyes

For more than 80 years Agustin Reyes Royal Violets could very well be called the cologne of the Cuban people.  Since childhood Cubans have enjoyed this refreshing cologne. Like many of our ancestors the Agustin Reyes story is born with hard work, dedication, and perseverance.

Agustin Francisco Reyes created his company on December 6 1927 after he traveled to France and received formal training in perfume making.  After launching his more popular perfume called;  Violetas Rusas (Russian violets) the Agustin Reyes brand consolidated itself as a cultural icon. Cubans took a liking to his products and they became the popular perfumes to use.

Mr. Reyes became the most famous perfumer of all times in Cuba receiving many prices for its creations. In 1960 he left Cuba and brought with him his most prized possessions, his family, and his perfume formulas.Viloets Perfume

The company was again created in Miami, Florida and the main ingredient was the family’s hard work and determination to succeed once more. Their most popular product was launched under the name Royal Violets using the original founder’s formula.

Royal Violets is not only a cultural icon for his popularity as a fragrance but because it represents the spirit of the Cuban and Cuban-American Community.

Agustin Reyes Royal Violets can be purchased by clicking here

The spirit to succeed and live a life with freedom away from their homeland is what has allowed many Cuban to succeed again as they once.
