Through this project I intend to bring value to contemporary crafts that honor our cultural diversity that encourages respect for other ways of life and starts a dialogue between individuals through objects that are both symbolic and significant. Revaluating the crafts and making them relevant could contribute to mend the social fabric and redirect the country towards a more integrated and equitable society.
