How did Sugar Skull Culture begin?

Sugar Skull Culture was born in 2014 from a love of sugar skulls and all they represent.  While they can now be considered popular culture, their origin and meaning is steeped in history and tradition.

Sugar skulls originate from Mexico, where from 31st October to 2nd November every year they celebrate the lives of dearly departed family and friends.  The 2nd November is known as the Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, and can be traced back to ancient traditions among Mexico’s pre-Columbian cultures.

On the Day of the Dead sugar skulls are often used to decorate the gravestones of the deceased. They are known as “sugar skulls” because traditionally they are made out of cane sugar and are decorated with colored foil, icing, beads, and feathers.

Sugar skulls are very colorful and whimsical, not scary at all.  We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
