A protea flower and sunbird is hand embroidered onto a graphic hand loomed cloth known as "binakol" from the north of the Philippines. The protea is the national flower of South Africa, it represents change, hope and regeneration in local tradition, the flower is embroidered by a group of talented crafts women who are part of a social enterprise called Heartworks. The cloth, Binakol is an ancient craft tradition in the Philippines, each graphic motif is an abstract illustration of daily life in the country. This motif is the "whirlpool", which is woven to protect us from illness and wicked spirits, it is thought to make them dizzy.
Creator: Heartworks was founded in Cape Town in 2005 as a springboard for a group of seropositive and marginalised women who were trained in an embroidery workshop. United by their talent within Heartworks, these women, from South Africa, Congo and Zambia, are true artists. Each of their works constitutes a unique piece of collection worthy of "haute couture" creations. The group now involves more than 30 women, enabling them to generate a decent income and acquire the confidence to move forward.
