Amalia

About the project

Amalia by Eggpicnic, celebrates a Chilean material called mimbre, going back to the essential of working with traditional materials and techniques. The technique of hand weaving mimbre originated in Chimbarongo, a town located 160 km south of the Chilean capital. In this small town this plant fiber is obtained from Salix viminalis, which grows naturally and the artisans that live there are brought up to take on the special skills of weaving objects using this material. This project was conducted in conjunction with mimbre artisans Francisco Palma and Mario Rojas.
