MATERIAL: Silk Cocoons
ORIGIN: Popayán, Cauca
HANDWOVEN BY THE POPAYAN WOMEN
The famous Caucan silk is a product of breeding silkworm and processing thread, originally brought to Colombia from China and Korea. The craftswomen (mainly single mothers) are responsible for the entire process of silk transformation. That's yarn production, dyeing and everything from horizontal and vertical looms, needles and frame tiptoes.
