Maxi, mestra Tecelã da Aldeia Boa Vista, em conversa sobre o algodão, o processo de fiar, a tecelagem e como tudo isso vem se transformando. ⁣2019 ⁣ Saberes como os que Maxi transmite agora para suas filhas e netas provém de tempos imemoriais. Eles são passados através da prática e da oralidade de uma geração para a outra, atravessando o tempo e os espaços. Infelizmente muitas jovens tem perdido o interesse em aprender a fiar o algodão.⁣ ⁣ Acontece que a tarefa exige muito tempo para ser executada, além de um longo período de aprendizado para resultar em uma matéria de qualidade. As linhas industriais além da facilidade também trazem uma nova gama de cores. ⁣ ⁣ Porém as linhas que provém da indústria consomem grandes quantidades de recursos naturais e insumos. A semente de algodão transgênico e o sistema de monoculturas demandam insumos externos como pesticidas e fertilizantes químicos que prejudicam a saúde e envenenam o ambiente. Além disso é usada imensa quantidade de água tanto no monocultivo quanto na lavagem e tingimento das linhas com pigmentos e fixadores carregados de metais pesados. Tudo isso causa um imenso dano ambiental.⁣ ⁣ Quando valorizamos os saberes tradicionais em pequena escala, apoiamos não somente a preservação de um legado cultural riquíssimo, mas também o equilíbrio natural do nosso planeta. ⁣ ⁣ Uma peça tecida com linha fiada a mão demanda muito mais energia e tempo, por isso possui um outro valor, que vai além do preço, mas que precisa se refletir nele para que sirva de incentivo as jovens aprendizes.⁣ ⁣

Pippin is growing fast. Over four months old now and he is bigger than both Frodo and Samwise who are a year older than him. Most goats enjoy getting scratched behind the horns but Pippin really enjoys chin rubs. #coloredangoragoats #fiberfarm #farmfiber #mohair #angoragoat #angoragoatsofinstagram #farmyarn #farmtoyarn #handspunyarn #handspun #handspunstagram #handspunofinstagram #ighandspun #spinner #spinstagram #spinnersofinstagram #igspinners #yarn #yarnlove #spinner #knitter #crocheter #shepherdess #greengoat #greengoatranch

Just reminiscing about the perfection of these, my first balls of drop-spindle handspun corriedale. I just finished knitting them up. Think I could have also kept them like this forever?

It all started with weaving and from there I began my spinning journey. A pile of scraps asked me for new life, so I found a way to do that. I reincarnated left over yarns in to magical skeins for weaving! Giving them a new form, is one of the most magical things I’ve discovered. . . . Do you have scrap yarns/threads or fabric!? What do you do with them? . . Do you want your stash of scraps spun up in a magical skein full of new life? I’d love your thoughts and ideas on giving you a scrap spinning service. . . #handspinning #handspunyarn #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #weaversofinstagram #spinning #spinningwheel #upcycled #handspinnersofinstagram #artyarn #wool #handspinner #yarn #handmade #handspinningyarn #scrapyarn #spinningfiber #fiberart #igspinners #handspunstagram #graphicdesgner #makersgonnamake #atexturecollection

Forever grateful for the artisans and craftsmen whose skills underpin the creative industries. In our speed-obsessed and globalised world, honouring crafts and craftspeople around the world matters more than ever. . . Especially in a country like ours where most of these acitvities take place and provide subsistence to the craftsmen and small scale industries. This pandemic should not let the burden of cost-cutting fall on our artisans. Instead, let's learn to value them. #supportindiandesigners . .

¡Hora del tinte! Hoy toca rubia tinctorum y alumbre. De esta planta usaremos sólo su raíz para teñir. Las hojas tienen otras propiedades farmacológicas.
