El textil como resistencia

Esta semana, tuve la oportunidad de hablar con Ana Laura Palacios, una chica muy joven y talentosa, que vive en Juchitán, Oaxaca y su familia vive en San Mateo del Mar. 

Ella me cuenta que después del temblor de 2017, varios artesanos fueron afectados en San Mateo, sus casas se derrumbaron, al igual que los hornos donde cocinan y muchos perdieron sus herramientas de trabajo. A partir de esto, Ana Laura decidió comenzar un proyecto con artesanas de San Mateo, llamado “Manos del Mar”, un nombre que me parece muy bonito.

"Se denominó así, porque sin duda, las manos son la herramienta con la que trabajan las maestras y maestros artesanos para crear los diseños que se comparten, mar por la fuerza que esta tiene y que siempre se tiene presente en cada situación en la que nos encontramos."

 A partir de entonces, poco a poco, Ana se ha ganado la confianza del grupo y se han capacitado con sus propias herramientas para crear hermosos huipiles con bordados de cadenilla, también tejidos en telar de cintura, con esto, han buscado mejorar su economía y consolidar la actividad textil de San Mateo.

Los desastres naturales no han sido los únicos obstáculos con los que se ha enfrentado la comunidad Ikoots en San Mateo del Mar. Este año, en los meses de mayo y junio, han habido conflictos armados:

 

“El presidente municipal de San Mateo del Mar, Oaxaca, Bernardino Ponce Hinojosa, confirmó el asesinato de 15 personas, entre ellas dos mujeres, quienes en su momento habían denunciado actos de hostigamiento y acoso por parte de sus vecinos, pobladores de la comunidad indígena ikoot de Huazantlán de Rio, en la región del Istmo de Tehuantepec”

 

“De igual manera mencionó que integrantes del crimen organizado estuvieron involucrados en “esta tragedia sin precedentes”, pues buscan apoderarse de este territorio por su ubicación estratégica para cometer diversos delitos relacionados con el tráfico de indocumentados y combustible robado.” Fuente: Periódico Excelsior.

Además de estos conflictos, el coronavirus ha llegado a la región del Istmo y no hay pruebas, ni medicinas, ni hospitales. “Hemos escuchado de gente contagiada”, “ las personas se curan con lo que tienen a la mano” “ yo les paso medicamentos cuando no encuentran en San Mateo”, dice Ana Laura.

 A pesar de los bloqueos y las barricadas que hay en San Mateo, las mujeres siguen bordando y tejiendo, Ana Laura les pasa material y comercializa los huipiles que con gran esfuerzo se logran terminar.

“El día de la balacera, las mujeres siguieron bordando y tejiendo, al siguiente día me dijeron que tenían piezas terminadas”, “El textil es resistencia, estamos resistiendo”, cuenta Ana Lau.

El año pasado tuve la oportunidad de trabajar en San Mateo del Mar, fue muy sorpresivo porque desde hacía tiempo que la belleza de sus textiles me atraían y me daban ganas de conocerlo. De pronto, sin esperarlo, me hablaron para invitarme a dar un taller, la fecha estaba muy próxima y todo fue apresurado pero no quise perder esa oportunidad. Fui a San Mateo y pude conocer la belleza de sus paisajes, de sus textiles, la calidez de la gente, la delicia de la comida...

Luego de un año de visitar San Mateo, me encontré con la cuenta de Manos del Mar en instagram, después de ver un video que Ana Laura publicó, me conmovió en demasía y no dudé en contactarla. Comenzaremos a colaborar juntas a distancia, hablamos sobre los diseños y colores que les interesa trabajar, decidimos desarrollar una línea tradicional, con los colores y telas brillantes que les gusta usar y otra línea de innovación, con telas de algodón y nuevas combinaciones de color. Para mi, este es un comienzo de diseño colaborativo.

Los textiles en San Mateo han resistido muchas décadas, ahora resisten en un mundo capitalista, en un entorno de violencia e incertidumbre, pero sus textiles siguen comunicando la belleza de San Mateo y de sus habitantes ikoots.

Deseo que pronto puedan salir sin miedo y Manos del Mar siga floreciendo.

Hey there, I just found your site, quick question…

My name’s Eric, I found entretejiendovoces.com after doing a quick search – you showed up near the top of the rankings, so whatever you’re doing for SEO, looks like it’s working well.

So here’s my question – what happens AFTER someone lands on your site? Anything?

Research tells us at least 70% of the people who find your site, after a quick once-over, they disappear… forever.

That means that all the work and effort you put into getting them to show up, goes down the tubes.

Why would you want all that good work – and the great site you’ve built – go to waste?

Because the odds are they’ll just skip over calling or even grabbing their phone, leaving you high and dry.

But here’s a thought… what if you could make it super-simple for someone to raise their hand, say, “okay, let’s talk” without requiring them to even pull their cell phone from their pocket?

You can – thanks to revolutionary new software that can literally make that first call happen NOW.

Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that sits on your site, ready and waiting to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re still there at your site.

You know, strike when the iron’s hot!

CLICK HERE http://jumboleadmagnet.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

When targeting leads, you HAVE to act fast – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later is huge – like 100 times better!

That’s why you should check out our new SMS Text With Lead feature as well… once you’ve captured the phone number of the website visitor, you can automatically kick off a text message (SMS) conversation with them.

Imagine how powerful this could be – even if they don’t take you up on your offer immediately, you can stay in touch with them using text messages to make new offers, provide links to great content, and build your credibility.

Just this alone could be a game changer to make your website even more effective.

Strike when the iron’s hot!

Hey, my name’s Eric and for just a second, imagine this…

- Someone does a search and winds up at entretejiendovoces.com.

- They hang out for a minute to check it out. “I’m interested… but… maybe…”

- And then they hit the back button and check out the other search results instead.

- Bottom line – you got an eyeball, but nothing else to show for it.

- There they go.

This isn’t really your fault – it happens a LOT – studies show 7 out of 10 visitors to any site disappear without leaving a trace.

But you CAN fix that.
