We present a collection of fun ethnic designs inspired by different nomadic tribes that live around the world, extracting their different folk elements and embodying them in fabrics, from traditional dances and music, to their relationship with the environment.
Velvet printed on a base mix of acrylic, polyester and cotton, with a striking design composed of a realistic drawing that reproduces the fauna and flora of jungle origin, and whose name is inspired by the Kayapó tribe, known as the guardians of the Amazon. This nomadic tribe has come to light in recent years for having defended the biodiversity of their territories from loggers, miners and ranchers, and for having prevented the construction of a dam that threatened the existence of thousands of species, as well as their lifestyle.
The Exotic Universe of Paul Gauguin
Paul Gauguin, a French post-impressionist painter contemporary with Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec and Cezànne, was a great genius, and like all genius, he lived an intense and difficult life: he changed places of residence several times, suffered poverty and misery and endured serious illnesses.
Fed up with everything, he decided to move to Tahiti (French Polynesia) in 1891. Gauguin said: I just want to create a simple art. For this I need to soak up a virgin nature, see nothing but wild.
He spent the rest of his life in Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands, where he managed to escape from the society of his time to find an environment and people not corrupted by progress. Under conditions of authenticity and primitive naivety, his painting flourished. Although he never knew success, after his death in 1903, his canvases began to be disseminated in exhibitions that caught on with the painters of the time.
Gauguin wanted to integrate himself into local life, knew their customs closely and understand their religion. The elements of the island’s folklore were great elements of inspiration in his work, observing the things he saw and trying to go beyond them.
Her palette came to life with pure, warm colors. His particular wild coloring and his way of portraying the natives and their arcadian landscapes made him one of the most influential artists in the entire history of art, Matisse’s Fauvism or Russian primitivism, for example, are great debtors of that artist in search of authenticity.
