a community of weavers
A project that gives voice to social discourses and narratives that, through interwoven pieces, represent human complexity and its deepest essence.
TRAMAS COLECTIVAS, a community of weavers seeks to teach artisanal knowledge in the craft of weaving to groups of people living in vulnerable situations in the city of Medellin.
Tramas Colectivas will give birth to communities of weavers that will both create new pieces and collections for TdS and provide a place for dialog, growth and weaving, where they can generate income and possibilities for transformative work for themselves and their families.

First community of weavers, fundamental purpose
We began the first Tramas Colectivas community of weavers alongside 9 wonderful working women from the Veracruz, Barbacoas and el Raudal sectors in the center of Medellin. This first group was made possible thanks to the *Putamente Poderosas collective with whom we have been working hand-in-hand throughout the year.
Together with them, we created this new collection woven in fique, natural cotton fibers, and wooden beads.
*Putamente Poderosas is an organization that seeks to highlight the issues surrounding sex work in Colombia, and to become a bridge between sex workers, the government, and the citizenry, to achieve social transformation.
