  Cristina Corona de Svanström
was born in Mexico, and ran for many years two handicraft shops, ”Chiras” and ”Chaqui”, and an art gallery, ”El Recoveco”, in the Zona Rosa in Mexico City. After moving to Sweden in the late eighties she opened the shop “El Sol” in Stockholm, but closed it some years ago to be able to live in Mexico during the winters. She is now dedicated to different aspects of mexican culture and history, and to take courses in handicrafts and art – to make things instead of just selling them.
