The fabric of our Agata piece is made by hand with organic cotton threads woven on pedal loom. A special technique is used to weave the threads creating a diamond shape design, doubling the amount of thread used.
Blue / Brown
To create this color we combine blue and brown threads. The blue shade comes from the process of dyeing over wood fire with indigo plants. While the brown shade comes from the process of dyeing over wood fire with oak bark.
The piece is woven together on the back using a technique known as randa, traditional of the Oaxacan community.
We highlight our Agata piece with a representation of a serpent, woven by hand using the ancient technique of reverse appliqué Mola. This technique originated from the Guna culture, closely connected to nature and the spiritual realm.
Like the rest of the piece, the serpent comes to life with organic cotton fabric woven on loom. Its colors come from zacatlaxcalli and marigold plants (yellow shades) and cochineal insects (pink and red shades). Cochineal insects reproduce on the nopal cactus and their color is extracted by leaving to dry under sunlight and boiling over wood fire.
