KAREN GUTIÉRREZ,

DESIGN & VISUAL COMMUNICATION - MEXICAN TEXTILE ART

XALAPA, VERACRÚZ.

After finishing her studies at The Fine Art Collage Of Xalapa, she started a Master in Textile Art at the Universidad Iberoamericana, México City. 

After finishing her studies she moved to Oaxaca to study the rural side of the Mexican textile and got involve with the indigenous women in the Sierra.

She was very interested in how people could live with simplicity and only with what nature will provide them so she moved to California, USA for Permaculture & organic farming studies.

When she came back to México, she lived in a very small mayan village called Macario Gómez

with the indigenous community there, to understand better the way this side of México applied the sustainability into their lives. She understood their natural way of slow living as well as their necessities. Since 2014 she is been in the Yucatán Peninsula constantly traveling to different mayan villages to connect with the women living there, their talents & necessities

"Being connected with my ancestors & honoring their cosmovition & simplicity of live

makes me feel alive" -K.G.
