OAXACA

I was inspired by Oaxaca's context, the sky, typical costumes and how the houses are painted with two beautiful colors.

Facades of Oaxaca

I walked for a couple of hours through the streets of Oaxaca. Is amazing how people paint their houses here, they are not afraid of color.

I met Felipe and José, they are two of four brothers that has the business of making fabrics in Oaxaca.

We arrived to the workshop in a lonely neighborhood in Oaxaca.

Felipe showed me how the machine works, the limitations of them, the colors they have, the kind of object they make. The excess of colors and combinations is notorious in their products. I thought there was a good chance for rethinking and to produce a lot of beautiful fabrics with them.

I asked to Felipe for some samples of some ideas that I had before and that I complimented there watching the scopes of the technique.

I was inspired by Oaxaca's context, the sky, typical costumes and how the houses are painted with two beautiful colors.

The two colors facades became the main concept of this textile collection.
