“Uniting two languages: embroidered texts and the language of silver.”
Ricardo Domingo, Creative Director at TANE
In a process of search and collaborative creation of more than two years, we undertook the mission of linking with the Textile Museum of Oaxaca, which from its experience and proximity to the communities that create the most beautiful textiles of the state, brought TANE to the community of San Antonino, Oaxaca, where the hands of the embroiderers were willing to open the intimacy of their craftsmanship to the goldsmith's house.
As part of TANE's responsibility to build a more just world, the collection BORDADOS by TANE has been created under strict standards of transparency and legality, as well as practices based on respect for the cultural and social values of all those involved. The embroiderers' cooperative of San Antonino Castillo Velasco, Oaxaca, has given its formal consent to collaborate with TANE and reproduce its designs as part of the pieces in the collection. A percentage of the sales of the collection is paid to the cooperative as royalties for the designs and it is the artisans who own the legal and intellectual authorship of all the pieces.
"Craftsmanship is a living reflection of identity.”
Huitzi Marín, Creative Manager at TANE
Each piece of BORDADOS was a technical challenge as each stitch represents the unique identity of the embroiderer and her work. Our master craftsmen transferred the meaning of each embroidery to silver and gold, capturing the different stories and legacies of the community of San Antonino Castillo Velasco, Oaxaca.
“I dreamed of seeing the pieces. It's something I adore.”
Carmen Cornelio Sánchez, Embroiderer
“Handmade, made with the heart, made with the soul.”
