UNIQUE ‘IMAL’ WALL TEXTILE
A special textile designed by Mestiz for Revolution of Forms and handmade at the pedal loom in Saltillo, Coahuila.
The colours of San Miguel de Allende are an intrinsic part of all the designs by Mestiz and lots of thoughts and work goes into experimenting with glazes and yarns to obtain the perfect shades.
‘IMAL’ is a beautiful textile by @mestizmx part of a new series called ‘Muros y Floreros’. Inspired by the streets of San Miguel de Allende where the designer Daniel Valero is based, this amazing work is included in our exhibition part of London Craft Week.
