Have you heard about the newest business to pop up in Wichita, Bella Bonita Designs? The name of the business may sound familiar because Owner and Artist behind Bella Bonita Designs, Stella Hankins has been popping up across Wichita for about two years now. She has been hustling to get her brand out in the community and has developed a loyal and growing following
Stella is known for her stylistic art work, handmade hair accessories and creative paintings and prints. She draws every design by hand and prints her designs on fabric, then sews her scrunchies, headbands, scarfs and more. She is also a painter and illustrator and her famous “Bonita” character has been seen across Wichita in many colors. During the pandemic we turned to Stella for masks that kept us on trend but also kept us safe. Stella is a true gem and is passionate about using her business as a platform to help others. She educates and employs men and women in recovery who are in need of a helping hand. Stella teaches them how to sew and then employs them. This allows them to use sewing as a therapeutic learned skill that doubles part time work.
