The fabrics used in the purple badges are dyed in our studio using leftover dye baths of black beans from our color process

Each badge is numbered and woven by participants in global workshops, arranged to discuss actions to empower women and stop gender violence.

The Nanduti technique we use to weave them oiginates from Paraguy. A badge can travel through several workshops and hands, before its finished and ready to be worn to spread awareness.

Symbols: The cross in the middle references the crosses on all light poles in Cd Juarez, painted in protest by activists and victims´families. The flower petals resemble hope, joy and life connected to economically independent women, and of course our use of botanical dye.
