The origin of Estampa’s name was nothing short of a miracle…, in Santiago, Chile, when a traveling salesman near the central plaza was offering various religious Estampas -pocket-size religious images- to passers-by. Suddenly, he saw the Lady of Carmen Estampa take-off by itself and miraculously start flying over his head. After more than half an hour of rambling flight -much to the growing crowd’s dismay- the Estampa traveled from one side of the plaza to the other, then crossed the Mapocho River until it gracefully landed on the feet of a woman teaching catechism to her children. To celebrate this extraordinary event, a catholic church was built in 1794 in the same place where the Estampa landed and was named the church of Our Lady of Carmen of the Flying Estampa. Don Manuel González Dieguez, Spanish immigrant and grandfather of the current González family, bought a wheat mill located next to the newly founded church and named it Molino Estampa after the flying Estampa miracle.
