Maiwa in Bolivia

We are in Bolivia now, with a frail hold on the threads of telecommunication. What we do have here are magnificent textiles ...

Jalq'a weaving woven by Marth Llampa

A short dispatch, received from Charllotte reads: "I came to Bolivia for the Jalk'a weavings and have just viewed a whole collection of exquisite ones from Asur. Crazy creatures inside creatures of a dreamworld of the weavers imagination. A fearsome, dark, chaotic world executed in the system of a loom. It is truly amazing. I can't wait to show others these pieces. We are going to Potosi tomorrow and hopefully Tarabuco and Candelaria."

We will try to update you on the trip as often as communication permits.
