The project

A visit to the community holy heart, in January 2021, allowed Luis Daniel to notice that there was only one weaver left in that place. Shortly after, researching and traveling, he discovered an equally troubling situation in Saint Ana.

In this way, it was proposed to rescue, promote and transmit to new generations ancestral tissues of both populations.

Started looking for supplies and resources to offer weaving workshops to local women, and the next step was motivate other national designers to use these supplies in their creations.

“Everything was recorded and we decided to make it a documentary. It is a complete compilation, not only of the experience of the workshops and of this knowledge recovery workbut also that search to put the population and culture in context so that we recognize their intangible value“, he pointed. โ€‹

The creator was struck by the fact that on the East, the fabric varies from population to population, from the color and yarn management, among other features.

“An attempt is made to create a connection with design so that the artisans don’t just make the pieces they know, but let their creativity fly and ideas of how they can apply artisanal knowledge“added the designer.
