In researching the rich textile history of Oaxaca, I came to realize how important the sense place is to way of making. Color is local -it is harvested from plants found in the surrounding region- and the use of materials is influenced the history of the area. Even techniques are passed down through generations and are tied to specific villages. I wanted to capture this idea and my own connection to place through this series of material explorations and garments.
