Anna Barroca’ s new collection Crochet is a source of unlimited inspiration. Crochet takes us back to traditional weaving techniques passed down from mothers to daughters for generations. The result is a series of extraordinary looks and stunning pictures.
To the wisdom of a world woven for centuries that is disappearing, though its legacy composed of craftsmanship, patience and respect for the natural rhythms of life help us design an improved reality thanks to those values. The abrupt disappearance of this generation of older women, the last weavers, is also the sunset of a world that disappears before our eyes. That is why Anna Barroca pays tribute to them, with a collection that recovers this technique to place it at the dawn of the avant-garde.
She describes it: ”Reality forces us to hide, to protect ourselves from others, with masks in an unfortunate carnival. However, in every tiny space, we find a place for freedom. The face is a piece of crochet through which we breathe and, though it obscures our gaze, it does not prevent us from freeing ourselves through hair, our expansive force, which, with the richness of its fibers, is the fabric of the soul. Tradition is a woven book that explains the world to us, and sometimes protects us from it. To understand it is to love it, and to love it, to preserve it. Hair is transformed into a sensitive tissue, which lies in the chiaroscuros to survive, from where it whispers to us that in ambiguity is its true essence: I am everything I want to be.”
Unique and experimental – we love it.
