The fire cover is woven on a waist loom and has brocaded details, a characteristic technique of the municipality of Aldama, a community in the highlands of Chiapas. Its design was elaborated by the artisans of the Malalena group, aesthetically interpreting and translating natural elements such as water, fire, air and earth.
This piece was made under concepts of collective creation between the artisans of the Malalena group and NGO Impacto.
