PEOPLE'S RESISTANCE WITH NEEDLE AND THREAD
A PEOPLE THAT BREADS ITS LIFE AND ITS STRUGGLES

On the fabric of used jute bags, more than 300 Chilean women embroider the history of their country day after day. Nothing escapes their notice. Arpilleras are never just decorative pieces. They always show us an aspect of the reality of people's lives or an indictment of a wrongdoing.

Irma Prado is a Chilean who has lived in Belgium since 1973. From 1978, she devoted herself to her personal mission of collecting, promoting and selling arpilleras in collaboration with the Vicariate of Solidarity (Santiago). With the arpilleras she exhibited in the most diverse places and created a workshop that was included in the programmes of global formation in schools and cultural centres.
