The Mapuche artisans that VOZ collaborates with bring their exquisite natural knowledge to our dyeing process, which connects our textiles to their origin. VOZ weaver Margarita Ñanculef teaches our team that “in order to dye the yarns, you have to ask for permission from the land in order to take the leaves and mud.” VOZ master artisans take pride in their craft and feel it is important to be a part of the process from start to finish. This process includes the creation of natural colors in the dyes that are used, each having a different significance in their culture.

A spiritual bond is formed as all materials are sourced from one’s land, from the fruits and vegetables used to make the dyes to the sheep that they raise for their wool. Natural dyes in VOZ’s handmade fashions include onion skins, Huaille leaves, Oak tree moss, mineral clay from river beds, Maqui leaves, and berries. These colors and the resulting textiles represent the richness of culture and deep natural knowledge of the weavers who work with VOZ, in their native Araucanía, Chile. Cultivating natural dye knowledge and exchanging recipes across matte is an intimate part of the VOZ process, supporting Mapuche women in sustaining their traditional ways of living.

When you come across the word “shawl”, your mind might be filled with images of cool winter nights and cups of toasty hot cocoa, but here our new intern Camille proves that just because our “Chevron Shawl” can keep you cozy in a winter’s chill, it doesn’t mean that it can’t also double as a high-collared sleeveless top for springtime sunshine!

Check out the Chevron Shawl on the runway at New York Fashion Week here.

We can’t wait to see how Camille styles our other designs!
