“I like these moments of sharing, where without realizing we learn at the same time that we teach, whether by words, looks, or demonstrations. Unfortunately, this face-to-face exchange was interrupted by the pandemic, but with the help of Kulikyrda, me and women from Kaupüna village were able to carry out them at a distance. Through video lessons, I learned the technique of weaving a mat and, in São Paulo, using cylinders of solid cabreuva instead of buriti stems, I wove a mat that became the door of a buffet.”
With a design also inspired by the oca structure, the “Shelter Credenza” represents the family – the shelter – where everyone protects themselves from the cold and rain, where they get together to sleep, where the young women go to their seclusion, and is also the place that keeps intact the traditions, identity, and culture of the Mehinako people.
