I am so very grateful to you who help and nurture the preservation of the Q’ero people and traditions. — Tony, Oregon
Like a poem, the overall creation of a textile tells a story that is larger than the individual parts. Although we “westerners” are not adept at reading the stories in the textiles, when we touch one of these exquisite pieces, our hearts respond to the beautiful aesthetics of each creation.
I stumbled upon your Mestanas, and I simply love them. I haven’t found other Mestanas which are even close to being as beautiful as yours. — Friederike, Germany
In these rapidly changing times, modern economic pressures and 21st Century norms put constant pressure on Q’ero communities and culture. We can help the stability of Q’ero communities by purchasing their woven narratives – their textiles – as an appreciative “audience.” Our purchases encourage them to continue to tell their stories and keep their culture alive.
The full price of your purchase goes to the weaver, her family, and her community for projects to support education, nutrition, health care, and traditional cultural.
