This project focuses on a research on the Guambiano indigenous culture in Colombia and combines ethnography, art and design.
Moved by the political situation in my country after fifty years of war, I went to Silvia in the department of Cauca, where the Guambiano community is decidedly settled after being greatly affected by war events. Based on previous projects, I developed some pieces that are a statement and a beginning of a new future business model.
The goal is to make a statement about role equality and create tools in the context of cloth making which aim at easing equal labor distribution.
