Another great news: we have a new listing online, something beautiful created by @kaleidocollection ♥️♥️♥️ @emianagracia also works with the same group of weavers at Lake Atitlán that specializes in the use of natural dyes and ikat designs. I'm super excited to include these beauties on our site, because together we can increase impact for the local community through increased orders. It's also a good way for the artisans to diversify and try new things, building more resilience. 💪 Follow link in bio to see what the final product is 😉 #supportartisans #womensupportingwomen

Washing out the wool Mamacha spun and dyed with plants and beatles, in the stream at @apulayaandesmanta Everyday we weave, learning new patterns and designs from Mamacha and Pedro, out teachers. Neither speaks English so I watch and listen to their Spanish or Quachua words and learn by doing. Andean semiology is vital to understanding their textiles. For they are not people of paper. The Incas recorded information, from the planetary cycles, to person journeys in their textile. All has function. All has balance. The femanine and masculine is balanced, while the mountain is masculine the earth from which the plants grow from is feminine. Androgony is also valued in nature and self. Inca logic is hard to beat. I am growing to understand land and people more deeply then ever before. #plantdye #naturalfibers #wool #handspunyarn #dropspindle #peru #andeantextiles #traditonalweaving #traditionalskills #workwithyourhands #internationaltravel #southamerica #backstrapweaving #sagrado

A wee shuttle and sword I carved for #backstrapweaving and #inkleweaving. These are made from Chinaberry deadwood in my yard. Swipe to see scale next to DMC perle cotton. #woodentools #woodworking #woodcarving #weavingtools #weaversofinstagram #diyfibertools #makeyourowntools #usingwhatihave #makeallthethings
