ABOUT THE ART

Recently we went to Mexico on vacation... land of beautiful people and beautiful colors! :) During this trip, I got Inspired by the textiles & colors of Mexico. I have created this series as a way to express my admiration and gratitude to the Textile industry. Having worked in fashion industry for many years, I've come to respect the collective genius of this industry... designing, pattern making, production, sourcing... and all that goes behind the scene. The most fundamental part of it is the Fabric itself, which is the body and soul of a garment.
While driving towards Todos Santos, we came across this Blanket Industry, where they have this Loom on which the Weaver works his magic. It's amazing to see the whole weaving process, and how a piece of textile is created. I had this magnificent chance to try my hands on this harness device. The word 'Handmade Fabric' took a whole different meaning.... made me feel more respect & fascination for the whole process. I had seen this art in India too, where hand woven fabric still holds a significant share in Textile industry. The digital age has taken away the satisfaction and fulfillment one feels after creating 'something' with their own hands. Now I feel that may be I should also learn this art. Will definitely look into this.... wonder where they teach here. :)

I know, Deepti! If I can't talk to local people, then I might as well not go at all :D

I know! You can't get the feel of a place unless you talk to local people, & feel the culture! :)

Hi Deepti - again, thank you for the accompanying text! I worked with a local art co-operative a few years back. One of the members is a brilliant weaver, and she kept one of her looms at the old courthouse building where we operated. Great to watch. My late mom did a lot of spinning - beautiful wool - and she hoped to weave, but that never came to pass, sadly. I have some great photos of woven pieces we took at exhibitions. Thank you for this - brought back memories!

Thank you so much Patricia, for your wonderful comments again! I was so impressed by the whole process of weaving... wish there were classes I could take to learn this! Would love to see the pictures you took at the exhibition! :))
