We live in an increasingly connected world, however we’re starting to lose the knowledge from our ancestors and connections to our past. As such, in order to encourage the preservation of our Peruvian hand woven traditional textiles and promote this craft, I have created a hand woven fabric with LED technology. I’ve sewn the LEDs into the back of a jean jacket that will ensure visibility while keeping you safe during your night walk or bike rides. My objective is to combine modern tech with our ancient native communities collaborating with Levi’s denim, creating a crafted yet functional item.
