Mexico is a mosaic of cultures, in which each culture brings color and history to the roots of all Mexicans. It is to tell this story that this project was born and aims to share its main characteristics. Join us to discover the communities that collaborate in this project.
Since few years, the indigenous,communities of Mexico and other countries are victims, in addition to the social inequalities linked to their development; plagiarism or inspiration, better known as cultural appropriation.
Their embroidery, designs which are the results of their cosmogony, their traditions are often “taken” and made passed as “clean” by signs of the large textile distribution, moreover their elaboration does not fill the “artisanal” side nor ” hand-embroidered, “and the posters are often the cheapest price that unites a piece that took a long time to make.
This situation of non-respect of the cultures and traditions of the Mexican communities, widens the social inequalities of the car communities, foreign or national tourists now bought these embroidered pieces in stores and not among craftsmen because they are “more expensive”. So it’s my duty as a Mexican citizen, bathed in the culturalism of Mexico to share with you the art of the Mexican communities and tell you the story of the artist and who created this or that piece, and the story of his home community. Because behind each piece there is a face and a story to tell.
