“Museo is proud to present its permanent collection of weavings to demonstrate the importance that these traditions played in the lives of the people who created them.
These weaving traditions occupy a special place in indigenous cultures, and they play an important role in the social, artistic, and religious life of their communities.
Legends, symbols, and clan recognition are woven into the textiles to convey messages for future generations.
This legacy is being embraced by contemporary designers who look for secrets in the ‘grecas’ to explain their timeless aesthetic appeal and mystery.”
