Fabric:I found this lovely fabric in great condition in the old Silvania printing factory, leftover from the days when my grandmother had several shops in Lima. Woven at a well known mill in Lima, La Union, this fabric waited in storage for close to 20 years. I showed it to a few textile experts to make sure it did not show any signs of wear. Thanks to Chaclacayo's sunny, dry conditions, it held up really well.
Printing: I met Modesto and Jorge years ago, before they set up their own printing factory in an industrial neighborhood of Lima, Peru. Modesto, Jorge, and their employees use eco-friendly water-based inks to print on their industrial screenprinting machine.
Sewing: Made by Georgia in her Portland, Oregon studio.
