Abstract

This research involves working with fair-trade weaving groups in Guatemala and Peru. Artisan textiles were co-designed with contemporary color palettes and layouts for backstrap weaving with U.S. designers. Co-design has been integrated into the textile design process in this study through pictures and technical diagrams. The textiles were then incorporated into modern silhouettes of apparel and home décor.
