Xingaderas are paper mache creatures born here on the border of El Paso and Cd. Juarez. They create paper mache masks, helmets and figurines that are inspired by the colors, creatures, forms, and patterns from cultures of the world.

The Xingaderas are made of recycled materials such as newspaper and plastic bottles covered with flour and water. Each one is an original design. Today my guest is Manuel Urueta, actor director and owner of Xingaderas, visit them on Instagram @xingaderas.
