Tell me a textile story

«Sustainably impressed by the diversity and abundance of fabrics, woven by the Mayans in Guatemala I wished to find out more. My soul was touched and being a textile arts teacher I started to learn some of these quite complex weaving techniques. Sitting outside, my backstrap loom attached to a tree and trying to get along with all the threads, I became aware of the profundity of this textile universe and experienced that beyond of every piece of wonderful fabric there are people with many stories to tell. My photocollages want to show you those stories; they also are a tribute to Guatemala’s rich textile culture. Enjoy them and tell yourself your own story!!!»
