We’ve told you that Entreaguas is the story behind the hands unseen, the ones who tied tradition through knots that make weareable art. But this time we want you to present one of the main characters: Adriana María Macías Galeano, a 47 year old paisa* that with the left overs of cloth that her grandmother gave her, she discover the treasure of making knots with her hands, an artisan technique called macramé.
Adriana is one of the womens that makes part of Entreaguas Fundation, and as if this were a “dear diary”, today she tell us a little bit about her story.
