This piece is made in collaboration between Amapolay, Autonomous Manufacturers in Lima, Peru, and Suay Sew Shop from Los Angeles.
Suay Sew Shop is creating a culture of community and reuse, “As our global community demands change from corporations, our dedication to design, coupled with a drive for activism, is putting reclaimed product at the center of a social, economic and environmental revolution. Cultivating upcycling as the priority will not only massively impact our planet, but our daily quality of life”.
Amapolay uses screen printing as a platform to elevate the struggles of Latin America's indigenous communities and resistance to colonialism. Their work draws on the popular art of Lima's working class neighborhoods and is heavily influenced by the painting style and symbology brought by Andean and Amazonian migrants. The juxtaposition of traditional motifs within urban settings is commentary and celebration of Peru's multicultural heritage, interpreted in their signature electric color palette.
