Inspired in the great Frida Kahlo!
Did you know that Frida was a half-indigenous Tehuana? Main topics in her artistic work focused on postcolonialism, gender and race inequality in Mexican society. Through her outfits, such as indigenous dresses, braids and flowers, Frida sent highly political statements of cultural indigenous identity and feminism during the 1940s. This is a great example of how fashion can bring relevant topics to the public attention.

Made in Venezuela
Venezuela is after Haiti the second poorest country in South America! With your order, you are helping the Wayuu indigenous people in Venezuela to secure an income. The production of the tapestry is a good source of income for the Wayuu in Venezuela. Especially because the indigenous people earn in Colombian pesos. Thereby, escaping the high inflation rate in Venezuela.

Material: Polyacrylic yarn 100% produced by the factory Miratex in Colombia. Azo dye-free, Iso-Standard 9001: 2000.
