Ligne An emancipation project in the Sierra de Zongolica Ligne

 

On December 18, 2016, RAIZS Artisanat Equitable participated in the Mexican-Latin Fiesta of Navidad which took place at the restaurant El Diablito Latino in the 11th district in Paris. This event, organized by the group "Amigas Latinas", was in support of the collective "Women weavers of the Sierra de Zongolica" in the state of Veracruz in Mexico, to support them in the path towards their socio-economic emancipation, As well as to contribute to perpetuate their know-how in the textile art of this region where the Nahuas (indigenous group) predominate.

This donation made it possible to buy 1.3 kg of a natural dye known as "añil" (indigo) which is very expensive and which will serve to naturally color the woolen pieces that they make throughout the year. Many thanks to all our supporters of development through art.

Ligne Festival BCN VIVE MEXICO 2017 Ligne

 

For the second consecutive year, the RAIZS Artisanat Equitable project participated in the BCN Vive México Festival in its 2017 edition, on 16 and 17 September.

Again, the Poble Espanyol, an emblematic place of the Spanish city of Barcelona, has received the most important festival of Mexico, that of its Independence sought the night of the 15 and 16 of September of 1810 by the Mexican people guided by the priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla. The celebration, gastromomy and Mexican music were at the rendezvous, but also solidarity, friendship and love, characterized by various activities like fundraising to help the Mexican people who were affected on 7 September by a strong earthquake mainly affecting the states of Chiapas and Oaxaca located in southern Mexico. Thanks to the Spanish people for their support and solidarity. Here are some pictures of these days full of life!
