    Description:

    This piece, made in a Fundación Solidaridad supported workshop, shows us the different stages and elements of making an arpillera, from preparing the raw materials to the finished product. Here the emphasis is more on the arpillera as a craft process, rather than on bringing forth stories of repression, hardship and human rights violations, as was the case heretofore.
