Invited by the Mexican Secretary of Culture, Moisés Hernández and his team travelled to Tlamacazapa, Guerrero. A small town where a variety of woven palm products are handcrafted. The objective was to generate new designs to reinforce the regional economic development through the commercialization of original objects. This project was developed with twenty craftswomen from Tlamacazapa.
The project involved three concepts: the use of complementary materials, colour and a tribute to the palm, which is a precious material. These exercises are based in techniques and the typology that craftswomen already commercialize: baskets and bags.
