THE HEART OF MARIA MICHAUD
Mexican culture and tradition interpreted by shapes captured on a swimsuit; a tribute to indigenous corners of the country, embroiding meaningful symbols.
“It is a laberynth of exact geometry through which colorful threads are inserted which intertwined bring meaning and purpose to complex cosmogramms”, “their details represent part of a conceptual universe of a prehispanic root, and transform such common products in art”.
This wise labour has been performed exclusively by women, who from a very young age begin to learn different techniques; currently it is a very important financial activity in some indiginous families, and sadly through the years it has lost the spiritual meaning which created them.
At Michaud, we believe it is still possible to rescue and preserve this tradition; therefore we seek to transmit mexican identity knitted in perfect shapes that represent the supernatural and the ordinary with determination.
