The colors of America

TEXTILES AND THEIR COLORS, A BRIDGE LINKING PAST AND PRESENT

Weaving is not just entwining fibers, it also means maintaining a dialogue with our origin. Weaving is trapping information of the cosmos in small knots and fibers. Weaving is preserving the language of a community, its culture and traditions.

“Mapuches, Tobas, Andean cultures, Incas, Aztecas, Amazon tribes have made of different textiles a second skin”

Native cultures have identified and expressed through their textiles, through the colors, designs, raw materials and techniques that make up their tradition and their own language.

Obtaining fibers, spinning yarn, dying and then weaving in a loom are successive decisions that craftsmen have to make to transmit their intention or message.

Mapuches, Tobas, Andean cultures, Incas, Aztecas, Amazon tribes have made of different textiles a second skin used to express their culture, ideology, ethnic identity and daily reality, to reflect their flora, fauna and cosmovision in different styles crafted by each culture.

“Along this experience we will get to know different knotting, lacing, netting and weaving techniques.”

Cave of the hands

We will also explore the connection of textiles and metals through ornaments and inlaying.
We will discover a great secret, the technique of yarning hundreds of metal threads that Marcelo Toledo has created to weave his creations with metal, a true novel craft.

We will also learn about the political or social ranks within the tribes through their attire and accessories and how that reminiscence is conveyed today by the most influential fashion personalities in the world.

This will be a practical experience guided by the artist and an expert in textile techniques of indigenous peoples, where we will be able to produce our own work by the end of the meeting.

 

Dare to be another color among the inhabitants of America.
