This is the work of Valentina Hoyos. I cannot understand very well what exactly it is that she does, but what I know is that I really like it. I’m guessing she works with different artisans who work with natural fibers using different traditional techniques.
“We use natural materials found in the environment, and native seeds, avoiding chemicals in their cultivation and process of elaboration. Simplicity and refinement are choices that reveal a way of being in the world, of respecting and taking care of the planet.
This vision also embraces those who work and produce these objects. This is a defense of a mode of production, and of fair payment that allows these people to live a dignified life in their craft.
Achieving this will not be easy. The path is a long one, and it demands of us clarity in our actions and a persevering spirit.”
