Introducing a very special print from Mrs Mighetto...
Posted on February 13 2018
For the first time in Mrs Mighetto's history the talented ladies, Anna and Malin have created a stunning new character based on a real person with a real story that affects thousands of children every year....
Meet Miss Della.
"When we first came in contact with Della and her family, we had mixed feelings. We were impressed by how her family managed to be so happy and energetic undeterred by the difficult situation of living with a sick child with special needs. We were inspired by how they live in the present and show humility towards everyday moments without dwelling on the uncertainty that always looms over them. We were also in awe of how they dared and wanted to share their situation with others, to both those who are familiar with it as well as those who find it completely foreign. Showing and teaching the outside world the magic of diversity. And out of this a Mrs Mighetto poster was born."
- Malin & Anna, Mrs Mighetto
When Miss Della was mentioned to the ladies as a possible product in their range, it felt completely natural for the pair to create her.
"The girl with brown curls that glitter for all the world to see makes for a portrait that differs from our others in many ways."
Della was born with cerebral palsy which was detected before she was born. She understands and feels so much, but has unfortunately never been able to speak or walk. Della’s time with her mother and father is limited and her time with her siblings is limited.
Della's mother was recently named 'The Inspirational Mum of the Year' by the Swedish magazine MAMA and is a successful blogger.
The pair mention that they not only feel humbled, but also very grateful to have been able to meet Della and her family. "Of all the 53 motifs we have launched, Miss Della is the most meaningful. She is real. We love imagination and everything about our invented world but none of our previous characters have been based on a real person. It felt wonderful and also very frightening."
A portion of each poster sold goes directly to The Swedish Brain Foundation (Hjärnfonden) and it's work in the area of brain disease, injury and disability.
The poster measures 50x70cm and comes in a landscape orientation, something Mrs Mighetto has never released in their collection before.
We hope you all choose to support this worthy project, and that you like darling Miss Della.
